    • 2 lb Ricotta Cheese
    • 2 quart Half and Half
    • 2 c. Sugar
    • 5 x Cardamon pods
    • 1 x Bay leaf
    • 1 tsp Vanilla
    •     Rose Water To taste (opt.)


    1. 1. Mix 1.5 c. of sugar with the Ricotta cheese and bake it in a 400 F oven for about 1hr and 15 min in a flat dish covered with aluminum foil. The cheese should have hard- ened and turned a pale brown.
    2. 2. Thicken the Half and Half by simmering over low heat for a long time.
    3. This is best done in a microwave; if a microwave is not available, do it over low heat and stir frequently. Thicken till the volume drops to around half of the origi- nal volume.
    4. 3. Add in the remaining 0.5 c. sugar, cardamon pods, bay leaf, vanilla and rose water (and any other flavouring which you may want) to the Half and Half. Heat for a few min.
    5. 4. After the cheese has been baked, cut it into 1 inch squares and add in to the warm thickened half and half. Cold for a few hrs in the fridge.
