Umm Ali~~Egyptian Pudding

To chose a food under International cuisine with starting letter as 'U' wasnt that much difficult for me, coz Umm ali was in my to do list since ages. Actually this Umm ali, a delicious dessert goes for an easy breezy preparation and its a famous bread pudding of Egypt. Everyone have their own version of Umm ali, some may goes for phyllo dough, some goes for crossisants while other goes for stale bread. But i chosed puff pastry to make this flaky and very nutty pudding. I used dessicated coconut flakes, nuts and some dry fruits. This recipe can be adapted easily with anything thats available in your pantry.

This pudding have a story behind it, but who cares we just enjoyed thoroughly this easy pudding, every single bite of this pudding is just out of the world. Within less than half an hour, this incredible pudding gets ready to relish and you can have it either warm or chilled with a scoop of vanilla icecream. Somehow i'll advice you to use puff pastry for making this pudding than crossisants or stale breads coz puff pastry gives a superb flaky texture to this pudding. If you a crowd to feed during a party, make this Umm ali for the dessert am sure everyone will enjoy thoroughly this pudding coz its completely egg free and very simple to prepare.


1no Puff pastry
1/4cup Sliced almonds
1/4cup Sultanas
15nos Walnuts
1/4cup Pistachios
1/4cup Dry fruits (chopped apricots,chopped dates,chopped pineapples)

1/2cup Dessicated coconut
1cup Sugar

Thaw the puff pastry, and arrange them over a baking tray lined with baking sheet.

Preheat the oven to 350F, bake in the oven for 15minutes.

Once the puff pastry turns golden brown, remove it from the oven.

Let the puff pastry gets cool, meanwhile take the milk,cream,dessicated coconut and sugar in a bowl.

Whiisk well until the sugar gets dissolves.

Now break the puff pastry into small pieces and take them in a shallow baking pan.


Pour the already prepared milk mixtures and now sprinkle generously on top the  sliced
