HOW TO PREPARE Keleij Recipe

Bring to boil the NESTLÉ Sweetened Condensed Milk with ¾ of the water.

In another bowl, dissolve the remaining water with the corn flour and semolina and slowly pour over the condensed milk mixture, constantly stirring, and cook on low heat for 5 minutes or until the mixture thickens and boils. Add the rose water and mix well.

In a big tray put the milk, the extra rose water and dip a half piece of the Keleij paper for 3 seconds only, and immediately add one tablespoon of the filling and roll it over to make a ball shape. Keep aside and serve cold with honey.
