Serves: 6

Ingredients

  • 4 Tbsp. ground rice
  • 3 cups (750 ml) milk
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup (60 g) sugar
  • 3/4 cup (90 g) ground blanched almonds
  • 1 Tbsp. rosewater                                             
  • 1/2 tsp ground cardamom
  • rose petals for garnish, optional

Instructions

1

In a small bowl, mix ground rice and 1/4 cup of milk. Bring remaining milk to a boil in a heavy saucepan. Stir in ground rice mixture, salt, and sugar.

2

Reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until mixture bubbles gently. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10-15 minutes, stirring often so mixture cooks slowly and does not scorch.

3

Stir in ground almonds until blended smoothly, then add the rosewater and ground cardamom. Remove from heat and stir occasionally until mixture cools slightly.

4

Pour into a serving bowl or individual small bowls.

5

Chill in refrigerator and serve garnished with rose petals or chopped nuts, or with pomegranate seeds if desired.

Notes

Cardamom is a spice that adds spicy sweetness to desserts. For best flavor, purchase cardamom pods and process to a powder in a mortar with pestle or make sure that your source of already-ground spices sells quality products.
