Yesterday, Feb 14th, was a VERY special day for me. It marked the conclusion of a 5 month fast period on every Friday for me. As per the religious beliefs and the holy book,I made this sweet rice-milk pudding yesterday. Also, it was Valentine's Day, and being the "sweetest" holiday, I had been only more glad that I could finally give this recipe a shot! I found this recipe in a magazine few days back. My mom and me had this for our Valentine's dinner at the end, as dessert:) She really liked it(and she is NOT a sweets person) and said, I must write "Dig in" to please her when I share the recipe on Zaar. That's why that's there in the recipe at the end;) HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY! May the fragrance of love touch every soul and its essence smell stronger with time!

Great recipe! I usually double the recipe and use fat free milk. I omit the condensed milk and sweeten with 60ml of agave nectar. I like it with 1/4 tsp of cardamom.

This gets "sampled" straight from the pot and enjoyed when it's cooled.

It makes a terrific cool desert for after a nice spicy Indian meal.

I love this recipe! It was so easy and delicious. I used 150g. rice, half whole milk and half skim, and whole cardamom pods. Thank you - I will be making this often!
