How to make Goat Milk Pastilla – Popular Gourmet Dessert Recipe

 

This is a traditional Moroccan dessert sometimes called Milk Bastilla. This is a fancy recipe that is mostly served on special occasions in Morocco. The Pastilla is a sweet and salty pie. This is a sweet version called Jawhara (which means in English jewel), top with almonds and mint leaf. Jawhara is made with milk, orange blossom water, and is served as a dessert.

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 pint goat milk
  • 2 tbsp fine cornmeal
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp orange blossom water
  • 1 x 2in cinnamon stick
  • pinch vanilla sugar
  • 3 pastilla leaves
  • vegetable oil, for deep frying
  • 4oz toasted sliced almonds
  • 2-3 fresh mint leaves

 

Directions:

  • Combine the cornmeal, goat milk, sugar, orange blossom water, cinnamon and vanilla sugar in a pan. Bring to the boil and mix gently with a wooden spoon until the mixture has a creamy consistency. Leave the mixture to cool, transfer to a bowl, cover and chill in the fridge.
  • Cut the pastilla leaves into three discs – about 8in in diameter. Heat the vegetable oil to in a deep heavy-bottomed saucepan, until a breadcrumb sizzles and browns when dropped in it. Place each pastilla disc into the boil and fry until browned. Remove each disc using a slotted spoon and transfer to a plate lined with kitchen paper to cool.
  • Remove the bowl of cornmeal mixture from the fridge. Place a pastilla leaf on a flat plate, cover with a layer of the cornmeal mixture and sprinkle with sliced almonds. Top with another pastilla leaf and add some more of the cornmeal mixture and almonds. Finally top with the last pastilla leaf and sprinkle the almonds on top.
  • Decorate with fresh mint leaves and serve at once.
