We love this pudding, it is nice and creamy, folding in the beaten egg whites creates a light and fluffy texture, oooh so yummy!!! We like it warm with some cinnamon sprinkled on top. It sets up nicely when chilled. A little time consuming to make, but worth the effort!

Best rice pudding I've tried yet. I added some cardamom pods (about 10?) when I started cooking the rice and milk to add an Indian flair. I usually add slivered almonds, but didn't have any this time. Anyway, this recipe as it stands is not only unusual in its preparation method but also quite exquisite. I served this at the end of a complete Indian meal. Fabulous!
