Made this for January Tag Game - 2011 and really enjoyed it. DH, not so much. He said "there's a funny taste" I personaly loved it but my suggestion is if you arn't used to the rose water, go easy on it. I did make it with cream of rice as that's what I had on hand and then followed the recipe. Served with a sprinkling of sugar, pat of butter and DH added milk to his. I'll be making this again, but only when it's me.

Enjoyed this for a nice hot breakfast! I scaled it back to 2 servings and reduced the cardamom just a bit. Cooking the farina in milk gave it a rich taste and I enjoyed the spicy/sweet flavor of the cardamom. Thank for sharing your recipe!

Delicious, quick and easy to make! I used the optional rosewater and would strongly suggest not omitting it. The rosewater is like the icing on the cake. The mixture was brought *almost* to the boil and the rosewater was stirred in right before serving. Garnished with sesame seeds and slivers of dried dates. Thanks! Reviewed for NA*ME Explores Oman.

This was delicious! We made it as a desert to go with our curried fish. I think next time I'd add more sugar and do only 2 tsp cardamom. Just personal preference.
