    JackieOhNo!'s Note:

    This traditional dessert is often pre[ared for Diwali, India's great Festival of Lights. Indians of all religions and sects join in 10 days of rejoicing and thanksgiving. For non-Indians, this dessert is a light, exotic twist from the usual rice pudding. Prep time does not include chilling time.

    1. 1
      Bring 6 cups milk to boil in heavy shallow 5-quart saucepan. Rinse rice with cold water until water runs clear. Drain. Stir rice into milk. Reduce heat and simmer until pudding thickens and rice is very tender, stirring frequently, about 1-1/4 hours.
    2. 2
      Puree 1/4 cup milk and almonds in blender until smooth, stopping occasionally to scrape down sides of blender. Add banana, sugar, cardamom and saffron and blend. Pour into pudding. Rinse blender with remaining 1/4 cup milk and add to pudding. Continue simmering until thickened to consistency of tapioca, about 10 minutes. Cool to room temperature. Cover and refrigerate until well chilled.
    3. 3

      We all really enjoyed this different (for us) rice pudding. The cardamom really came through and the saffron added both flavour and colour. Thanks for a great recipe.
