  • 6 cups - fresh Milk
  • 2 cups - basmati Rice
  • 1/4 cup - clarified Butter (ghee)
  • 3 cups - Sugar
  • 1 tsp - green Cardamom powder
  • 2 tbsp - almonds, peeled and slivered
  • 1/4 cup - Raisins
  • 1 pinch Saffron
  • 2 tbsp - Milk to dissolve the Saffron
  • 1 silver warak
  • How to Make Tasty Rice Pudding:

    1. Wash the rice in running water, soak for an hour and drain.
    2. Blanch the almonds for one minute in boiling water, remove the skin and split in half or you can buy these ready prepared.
    3. Dissolve the saffron in warm milk.
    4. Boil milk in a pot or handi for an hour until it is thickened.
    5. Remove from heat and set aside for later.
    6. Heat clarified butter in a separate pot of handi.
    7. Add rice and saute to seal it and until it begins to colour (about 4-5 minutes).
    8. Pour in the saffron milk over the rice and bring to a boil, stirring constantly to ensure it does not stick to the bottom.
    9. Reduce to low heat and simmer until the rice is cooked (about 20 minutes).
    10. Now add sugar and continue to cook and stir until it reduces to a custard-like consistency (a further 5 to 8 minutes).
    11. Now add all the remaining ingredients and stir for a minute.
    12. Pour in a bowl and garnish with almonds and silver or gold warak.
    13. Serve hot. If you allow it to cool, serve chilled.
