Meghli Fast Version For My Phd Friend…

So by now a lot of you know my marathon friend, my adored cousin and a lot of Lebelik’s designers, some of my friends and some of the women in my life, but today for the first time, I’m introducing my little Phd friend. Small in size but great on every other level. I am sure you will love her brains and heart as much as I do.

As I posted the meghli’s recipe, she wrote back saying she needed it… The thing is I know she works long hours and will never have enough time to stir the mix for 2 hours… So to you dear friend, a fast version of Meghli =) It holds the same wishes of love and babiesf. The only thing you will be compromising is a tiny bit of taste (mainly in texture).


  • 1 cup of grounded rice
  • 9 cups of water
  • 9 TBL of sugar
  • 3 TBL of honey
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon
  • 1 TBL of anise powder
  • 1 TBL of caraway powder
  • 1/2 cup of granted coconuts (optional)
  • peeled pistachios + almonds + pine nuts soaked in water


  • Dissolve the rice in water and put in a heavy thick-bottomed saucepan
  • Put the pan over heat and mix with a wooden spoon to avoid the rice sticking to the bottom of the pan
  • Add the sugar and honey and bring to boil. When the content starts to boil and bubbles appear on the surface of the meghli, reduce the heat  and continue mixing
  • Once the meghli has thickened, mix in the spices and a bit of the coconut powder (if you like it – I don’t usually add coconut to it)
  • Put off the heat and empty into cups. Leave to cool.
  • Decorate with the nuts and coconuts
  • Serve at room temperature

Sahtein wou 3a2belik =) (in Arabic meaning: enjoy eating it and hope you’ll have a baby one day too)

Hope to see you soon,
