UMM-E-ALI

Its an egyptian dessert that contains phyllo dough or puff pastry, milk and nuts. Any type of nuts can be used. Even croissants can be used instead of puff pastry.
UMM-E-ALI is an arabic word which means Ali's mother. There are many stories behind this recipe. But who needs the story as far as the recipe is delicious and comforting




Ingredients:
Puff pastry
Milk(evaporated)
Pistachios
Almonds
Elaichi powder
sugar
Butter

Preparation:
1. preheat the oven to 400 degrees farenheit and place the puff pastry in a buttered baking sheet and bake it until it becomes golden brown on top
2. Remove the baked puff pastry and let it cool
3. Pour the evaporated milk in a container and add sugar and elaichi powder and bring it to a boil
4. Cut the puff pastries into small squares and arrange in a oven safe bowl which is buttered
5. Sprinkle the chopped nuts on top (Raisins are also used. But i dont like it)
6. Pour the milk on top and leave it until the milk is absorbed by the puff pastry. If it became too dry pour some more milk and let it absorb
7. Sprinkle the remaining nuts on top and bake it in the oven at 350 degree farenheit for 30-35 min or until the top becomes golden brown
8. Keep the remaining milk for pouring on top while serving
