Meghli, moghli, or karawiyah  is a Levantine dessert based on a floured rice pudding and spiced with anise, caraway, and cinnamon. The dish is often garnished with shredded coconut and various nuts including almonds, walnuts, pine nuts and pistachios. Meghli is commonly served to celebrate Christmas or the birth of a child.
The dish was traditionally served to celebrate the birth of a male heir, but has now became a dessert to celebrate any newborn. The caraway is thought to assist the new mother in lactating and reduces bloating.
