Ma’mouniyeh is a ancient and traditional wheat cream pudding from the Middle -East. It is said that it’s named after 9th Century Caliph Ma’moun. Very easy, simple yet delicious to eat recipe. I love trying cuisines from all over the world and desserts of Middle East which I’ve been cooking of late is very interesting, delicious to eat and simple to make.
