In a small bowl, combine the corn flour and 125ml of milk and whisk to dissolve.


Place the rest of the milk in a medium pot, along with the sugar and place over a medium heat. Bring to a gentle boil and whisk in the corn flour mixture. Whisk until the mixture thickens slightly then remove from the heat.


Add in the rose and orange waters and refrigerate until completely chilled.


When ready to serve, hull the strawberries. Place the milk mixture in a blender along with the strawberries and blitz to combine.


Dip the rims of 4 glasses in the jam, then roll the rims in rose petals.


Divide the rest of the jam between 4 glasses and top with the muhallabiya drink.


Serve immediately.
