Delicious! I made it a little lighter by using 1% milk, and half n half instead of heavy cream. Also used Splenda instead of sugar. It was wonderful. Will definitely make this again. Thank you for posting.

I have had this recipe saved for a long long time, but I have never made it because my mother had it ingrained into my mind that rice puddings were just 'no good'. Well, one day I overcame this negative view and decided to try this, and to my amazement it tasted almost exactly the same as the vermicelli puddings that the indians in our community used to make on the morning of Eid!! I was astonished and delighted because I have been craving for some ever since we moved. Now next time I will just substitute the rice with vermicelli! Also, I put in dates and substituted the sugar with brown sugar and added flaked almonds instead of pistachios. This was soooo delicious and I have made it 2 times already in just these first 4 days of Ramadhan!!

It was too "coconuty" for me. I never taste a hint of that when I order this dessert at the Indian Restaurants. Definitely next time I'll leave out the coconut and just add it sparingly at the end if I feel it needs it.

This is SO delicious! I used craisins instead of golden raisins. Beware though, this is a VERY heavy pudding, so even though it's delicious, don't over eat! Thanks for sharing!

Delicious! I love the flavor of this! And it was pretty easy to make. Left out the raisins and nuts because I didn't have any and DH hates raisins. Still good! Thanks for a great recipe!

Wonderful-definately NOT diet food-but who care when it tastes so good. I love indian rice pudding and I never made it before-this recipe is easy ( i used basmati rice) and authentic. I made this recipe as is and I wouldnt change a thing. Thanks Velouria for the great recipe.

This was great! This is a good recipe if you want to use up some leftover rice. I didn't have any nuts on hand and it still turned out good. Next time I think I will try putting some cinnamon in it.
