Add milk, cream, corn starch and Edible gum in a saucepan. Mix them well. Heat this on a medium flame and keep stirring it frequently so as to avoid lumps.
After about 12 minutes when the mixture starts to thicken, add the orange blossom water and Rose water. Stir it and keep it on the flame until the consistency is of a ribbon flow.
Turn off the flame, cool and then transfer it to bowl or to an individual serving bowl and refrigerate it for a minimum of 3 hours. Then serve it chilled.

The original recipe calls for Mastic, an edible gum variety used in the Greek Cuisine. You can substitute this with Gondh. Please use Mastica, if you can get it.
This recipe can be made without Cream cheese. I am not sure which is the authentic way but it should definitely have cream in it as it is a Cream Pudding. 3. Additionally, you can also serve this with any fruit compote to give it a variation.
