I used to make Om Ali with a ready-cooked puff pastry, but now I cook the puff pastry myself! So easy!

How To Make Om Ali From Scratch

how to make the recipe from scratch

Baking the Pastry: Bake, the pastry for 5-8 minutes on each side or until it, turns a golden colour. 

Leave the pastry to cool down for 15 minutes then break it up to medium-sized pieces and put in an ovenproof dish. After that, sprinkle the chopped nuts on top.

Preparing The Milk: In a saucepan, add the milk, heavy cream and sugar over high heat then bring to a boil. Stir from time to time until the sugar dissolve.

Combine everything: Pour the hot milk over the pastry then add the butter slices on top. 

Leave the pastry for about 30-40 minutes to absorb some of the milk.

Baking: Bake at 180 for 30 minutes or until a beautiful golden colour forms on the top.

Serving: If you like to eat it hot garnish with some nuts (optional) and serve or if you prefer to eat it cold, refrigerate it for 2-3 hours then garnish (if you like) and serve.

Can I Make This Bread Pudding Nuts Free?

Actually, this recipe is so delicious with nuts, but if you have issues with nuts, you can make it plain or just use coconut and any seeds you like, such as sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds.

Tip: Removing the nuts will make the recipe not the traditional Egyptian version anymore. (I made it before without any nuts but I have never tried it with seeds.)

How To Serve Om Ali?

This crazy delicious dessert can be served hot or cold, as you prefer. Scoop it in a small bowl and garnish with some nuts or some ground cinnamon if you like.
