    RachelT's Note:

    This gently spiced, vanilla-scented pudding is so velvety you'd never suspect that it's made with skim milk instead of regular. It can also be served warm. Pudding Pizzazz: Tweak the flavor by trading ingredients. Try pistachios or chopped dried apricots instead of raisins, or use ground nutmeg instead of cardamom or cinnamon.

    1. 1
      In a large saucepan, combine rice and 5 cups milk; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium; simmer, stirring occasionally, until rice is tender, 15 to 17 minutes.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk together sugar, eggs, vanilla, cardamom, and remaining cup milk. Slowly pour egg mixture into rice mixture; cook over medium-low, stirring constantly, until pudding coats the back of a spoon, 3 to 5 minutes.
    3. 3
      Remove from heat; stir in raisins. Pour pudding into a 6-quart casserole dish or large bowl; let cool to room temperature. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour (or up to 3 days). Serve pudding garnished with more raisins and cardamom.

      Very good! I must admit I made a few changes, only one of them deliberate. I halved the recipe, using 2 medium-size eggs. When I realized I needed to open a new bottle of vanilla, by the time I was able to remove the troublesome lid my train of thought had derailed and I put the vanilla AND the cinnamon into the pot of simmering rice. So, since I love those flavors anyway I added it to the egg mixture again. I tempered the egg mixture with a half cup of the boiling rice milk, then added the egg mixture back into the rice pot. The timing was right on, within about 5 minutes it coated the back of a spoon and was very creamy. It was then that I went too far. Wanting a little thicker texture, I continued to cook and stir another 3-5 minutes. That was a mistake as the pudding started to separate. I immediately removed it from the heat. All in all, it was very tasty and when I make it again (and I certainly will), I will take a bit more care. The flavor was excellent and the preparation was relatively simple! Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe.
