This didn't work for me. 1/4 cups of basmati rice is not enough for 5 cups of liquid. I could drink it through a straw. Nice flavor though.

I`m typing here and eating this delish Rice pudding. It`s just so rich and creamy. Total comfort food! Eating it hot. Made it in my slow cooker. Doubled the raisins, and cardamom, skipped the coconut, put in 1 vanilla bean and some cinnamon. Added all at one time and cooked in the slow cooker for 3 hours.SOOOOOOOOOOOOO GOOOOOOOOD!
