A little rose water gives this delicious version of rice pudding a delicate floral quality. It also lends the dessert Middle Eastern accents, along with sultanas (or golden raisins), pistachios, and the use of basmati rice (instead of other varieties). Look for rose water at specialty food shops and ethnic grocers, or from online sources. You can substitute pure vanilla extract in a pinch, but the outcome won't be the same.

Ingredients

  • 150 grams basmati rice
  • milk (1 lt., fresh and whole)
  • 90 grams sugar
  • 130 grams sultanas (soaked in warm water)
  • ground cinnamon
  • rose water (or vanilla extract)
  • pistachios (unsalted and ground)

Directions

  1. Wash the rice well, dry it completely, and grind the grains coarsely.
  2. Boil the milk for approximately 15 minutes.
  3. Add the rice and cook until creamy.
  4. Add the sugar, the sultanas, and a pinch of cinnamon and mix well.
  5. Remove from the heat and add the rosewater (or vanilla extract).
  6. Sprinkle with the ground pistachios.
  7. It can be served hot or cold

  I was looking for a different kind of dessert when I found this recipe. It stood out to me because of the use of sultanas (green, seedless grapes). I loved the creamy texture of the pudding with the crunch of the pistachios. I tasted the pudding both warm and cold, and I prefer it cold. Kind of reminded me of full fat yogurt or a low fat ice cream.
