This was very tasty for DH, DD (toddler) and I. I used unsalted butter, white Basmati rice cooked without salt, dark raisins, no alcohol vanilla paste, freshly ground cardamom which I think made it more delicious, heavy cream plus some water as that is what I had around, plus the cinnamon stick. The look after the milk had being absorbed was slightly caramel colour which did not look too good but the taste!!! I would make this again with half-and-half and maybe no raisins but I actually thought they were good in this one. Made for Ramadan Tag 2010.
Made exactly as written for the FYC Tag Game @ FF&F using Basmati rice, raisins & grd cinnamon. I faltered at the end w/my decision making. When I ck'd the pudding at 2 hrs, it didn't seem quite done to me so I continued to cook it for the full 2 1/2 hrs & it was more dry than I'd normally prefer - My bad. In retrospect, I should have turned off the crock-pot & allowed the pudding finish cooking as it cooled down. However, adding just a bit of milk brought it back to my desired consistency. Mine also had the caramel-like color mentioned by other reviewers (prob a normal result if raisins are used). We had a guest for dinner & all 3 of us enjoyed this mellow rice pudding, CG. None of us are fond of super-sweet desserts, so this was ideal for us. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. :-)
GREAT recipe. I doubled the recipe. I used sweetened condensed milk and heavy cream for the original recipe and all heavy cream when I doubled it because I only had 1 can of sweetened condensed milk. I added a little salt too and 1/2 of a cube of butter cut in pieces. I added about 1/2 cup of sugar to sweeten everything since the cream is not as sweet as the condensed milk. I also threw in 1/2 a large package of instant vanilla pudding mix. It came out spectacularly! Hope all my additions in this review make sense. Thanks for a yummy recipe ?
I started this about 3 hrs ago and made it as directed using Basmati (I always have it in the house). First time that I have ever done rice pudding in the crock pot and it turned out great. I took the crock out and let it stand on the counter until DH got home for lunch and he's enjoying a big warm dish of it now. I used some heavy cream as I had a liter in the fridge that was a couple of day's past it's date. DH thinks that he's being spoiled and maybe he is, lol. Excellent pudding with very little pudding.
Always on the look for good recipes for my DDs breakfast. This one I enjoyed myself( yes,it was the cardamon).I used long grain rice.Thanks for sharing.
