My love for Mahalepi is insatiable! I really don't know why but this Cypriot dessert really captures my heart. It reminds me of Malaysia and Tau Fu Fah (SoyBean Curd) all the time.
Malaysian syrup drink, namely called Sirap or Bandung (when you add evaporated milk to it) tasted exactly like Mahalepi. It's the rosewater. The rosewater is the key why Mahalepi reminds me of Malaysia.
Simple add cherry or rose petal to tint the rosewater syrup redish like when you melt sugar with boiling water over stove.
