I googled and found several references. As your use sounds wonderful, I think I'll try it. This is the best I saw: http://www.timesonline.co.uk/article...6940_3,00.html

edit: I found this which has another and maybe better explanation: http://forums.egullet.org/index.php?showtopic=28480
May you eat well,

Thanks so much for posting the second website. I love Lebanese food, and have made a few dishes, and these look great. Can't wait to try some of them.

Hi Robt --

Thank you very much! The first recipe seems closer because it was clearly milk rather than cream, however, I could still swear we were talking gelatin rather than corn starch ... but I'll give the recipe a try and see if I got it wrong!

The second link is just great in general! So nice to have all those pictures, and any number of the recipes seem spot on. Good job finding the site and again, thank you!
