Words cannot describe this pudding. Amazing, delicious... Followed the recipe exactly, only omitted the butter because after tasting it I felt it did not need it, so I saved some calories there. This does not need milk if you eat it right after it's done on the stovetop, but will need it after it starts to coagulate after sitting for awhile. Thank you for posting. Be sure to use fresh orange peel - this is the best touch!!!

So good. And easy to make.The chai tea seasoning was delicious in this rice dish. I used apricots and pineapple. I didn't have pistacios so I used sliced almonds; used all full-fat ingredients. Omitted the whipped cream. The next day it was great icebox-cold (I put whipped cream on that one). Great recipe LittleWing.
