    Bayhill's Note:

    Posted for the Zaar World Tour 2006-Egypt. From the "Best of International Cooking" cookbook. I haven't had the opportunity to try this recipe yet. The surface crust on this pudding is stirred into the pudding giving it a delicate caramel flavor. Note: Prep time doesn't include refrigeration time.

      I've made this dish for the first time a couple of years ago , I saw it in the ZWT6 book and I made it for DDs breakfast. Of course,I joined them as well. I made it the previous evening,because when the little one is hungry she's not the waiting type. I used rosewater. A very Middle Eastern tasting pudding. Thanks for sharing.

      Goodness gracious this was delicious. I did omit the raisins and I'm not a raisin fan. I also used the cinnamon as I didn't have any rose water. This was easy to make and the pistachios gave it a very different flavor from my traditional rice pudding. BAYHILL...this one is a HUGE WINNER!! Thank you for sharing!
