Damla Sakızı KAZANDİBİ (Turkish dessert)

Dessert or "tatlı" in Turkish language means Sweet. So mostly Turkish dessert are sweet and delicate. Just like this one.. called Damla Sakızı Kazandibi.
Damla Sakızı= also call mastic gum, Kazandibi= Pudding. So this pudding made from milk, rice flour, cornstarch and powdered sugar also content this kind of mastic gum. Cooked then burned a bit on stove to make 'skin' underneath (it will turn over when served)..  with strong Cinnamon flavor make this dessert perfect to complete your lunch or dinner.

- 1 liter of fresh milk
- 3 pieces (small pieces form usually less than 0.5 cm in diameter) damla sakızı or mastic gum.
- 3 tablespoons rice flour
- 2 tbsp corn starch
- 1 cup powdered sugar + 1 tablespoon + a few tablespoons for sprinkle on baking pan.
- 1 cinnamon stick
- Enough ground cinnamon for topping when serving.

1) Using a mortar crush damla sakizi with 1 tablespoon powdered sugar until smooth and powdered. Set aside. Prepare an aluminium baking pan approximately 27 cm diameter. Sprinkle with powder sugar. Set aside.
2) Mix milk, rice flour, corn starch, 1 cup powdered sugar, cinnamon sticks. Stir until there is no lump. Heat over medium heat until almost thick. Then stir in damla sakızı  mixture. Stirring constantly until thick. Take out cinnamon stick. Turn off the fire.
3) Pour a small amount of pudding into baking pan which already sprinkled with powder sugar, smooth the surface with spatula. Heat the pan over a medium heat , sliding the pan continuously to distribute heat over it bottom to form  "skin" and slightly burnt. Pour remaining pudding mixture into baking pan, let it for about 5 menit and remove from fire. Chill.
4) Store in refrigerator until ready to serve.

How to serve. Cut to taste (or leave whole), and turn over pudding on serving dish with the "skin" on top. sprinkle with cinnamon powder.
