    Zan-ja-beel ma haleeb~ Milk with Ginger

    A must during the winter months throughout the UAE. A favourite amongst the Arab men in the rural and remote areas, as well as the most modern home today. Usually made just after sunset in the winter months, it is kept warm in a thermos flask until consumed.

    6 cups fresh milk
    sugar to taste
    1-2 inch piece of fresh ginger (finely grated)

    Place the ginger and sugar into a pot and pour milk on them. Slowly bring to the boil to prevent burning. Once it has reached the boiling stage, reduce the heat and simmer for 10-12 minutes. Transfer to a flask until ready to serve.
