Lebanese Meghli

Lebanese Meghli pinit

Meghli is a light dessert that is prepared in abundance in the Levant region, especially the Lebanese cuisine, where it is served especially on birth occasions as one of the customs and traditions.
It’s one of the desserts that contain proteins, carbohydrates, and fats.

It is a delicious pudding of ground rice with spices: anise, cinnamon, caraway, and decorated with coconut shredded and hearts: walnuts, almonds, pine nuts and pistachios.
Since this pudding accompanies the birth of a child, it is natural that we offer it at Christmas to celebrate the birth of Christ.

I prepared the meghli with my mother-in-law, following the family recipe, a very easy recipe that you can prepare.
This healthy, nutritious, natural gluten-free soft rice dessert is lactose-free and vegan-free.
