Try Umm Ali

They prepare this Arab dish for holidays or weekends, and serve to guests and family members in bowls with a cup of tea or sweet-scented coffee. Not only locals, but also many guests of the Emirates appreciate the bread pudding Umm Ali.

They bake Umm Ali of unleavened dough with raisins, dried fruit, chopped almonds and hazelnuts, although you can use other nuts. All the ingredients are mixed with milk, butter, and sugar and baked in oven until brown crisp formation. Hot pudding is impregnated with a sweet syrup or rose water.

The Umm Ali dessert, which means “Ali Mommy”, has its own legend. One tyrannous queen ordered the execution of a military leader, thus killing a father of a ten year old boy, Ali, suffering from dementia. The child's mother retaliated upon the queen and organized a feast, where treated all guests with a famous dessert.
