Cornstarch Pudding- Mahallabi محلبي

This is a very delicious and light dessert that we serve after a heavy meal. You can eat it for breakfast and top it with fruit if you prefer.
2 cups milk
3 tablespoons sugar
5 tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon rosewater
½ teaspoon ground cardamom
Bring one and a half cups of milk to a boil. Add the sugar and stir. Mix the cornstarch in ½ cup of milk and pour over the milk and sugar mixture. Keep stirring until it thickens. Remove from heat and add the rosewater and cardamom and stir. Pour pudding in small custard cups and decorate with pistachios.
Put in refrigerator until ready to serve.
