Umm Ali

Umm Ali is a rich dessert that would taste even better with a scoop of ice cream. It is an Egyptian dessert, probably it is the mother of Ali, who invented the lovely recipe and hence the name Um Ali. Here you can  use whipping cream in addition of heavy cream or as a substitute heavy cream. 
Umm Ali

  1. Puff pastry thawed-1pack (6 kara biscuits, 5 croissants or even 5 breads can be used instead)
  2. Mixed fruits and nuts- ½ cup
  3. Milk-1 ½ cup
  4. Heavy cream – 1 ½ cup
  5. Vanilla extract-1tsp
  6. Sugar- ¼ cup (or milkmaid)
  • Preheat the oven in to 350 c and place the puff pastry on baking sheet.
  • Bake for 15 minutes until puffed and golden. Set aside to cool.
  • Mean while heat milk, cream, vanilla and sugar in a sauce pan, and turn off the heat just before boiling (do not allow boiling).
  • In a baking tray break the puff pastry in to bite sized pieces.
  • Spread the chopped nuts and raisins on top of it evenly.
  • Pour the milk-cream mixture on top of it evenly.
  • Again top it with nuts.
  • Bake it for 20-30 minutes or until top reaches golden color.
  • Let it cool and serve.

Note: You can serve it without baking also. If you are not baking refrigerate it for 4 hours to set.If you are using kara biscuits or croissants as a substitute of puff pastry, no need to bake it first, just make them pieces and spread it on the pudding tray. if you are adding whipping cream , no need to heat it first.
