    Anu's Note:

    My mom made this for my 19th birthday (according to the Tamil calender, this year it's a day before my "real" birthday) and I was so touched and thrilled that she took the effort to make me something special that I would've posted this recipe even if it wasn't fabulous. Well, but you know what... it IS fabulous!!! The sweetness of this recipe is just right for me, but some of you may need to make this sweeter according to your personal tastes. My mom made this without the dates (which I don't like) and orange rind, but the original recipe includes them. Please note that prep. time does not include cooling time. This is from "Sweet Encounters" by Sanjeev Kapoor.

      Really divine! I made this this evening for my dad to enjoy after dinner tonight. This makes about 2 servings and NOT 4-6! I omitted the dates and orange rind totally as I don't like either. I used 2 1/2 tbsps. of honey, a little more than 1/4 tsp. of essence, 2 tbsps. less than 1/2 a cup of orange juice, 1/3 cup Basmati rice, 1/2 cup raisins and 2 cups of low-fat milk. All throughout I had the wrong picture in my mind that once baked this would have become golden brown and have a crust like appearance. When I baked it in the oven(which I'd pre-heated to 160C) for 10 minutes, I failed to see the crust like pic which I'd had in my mind, and I baked it for another 10 minutes and thereafter for another 10 ! So, in total, I baked it for 35 minutes! No wonder my house is smelling so orangey and mmmmm, lovely!:) I also loved the taste of raisins in this, loved biting the bloated raisin:) A tip I'd like to share with everyone is when you add the rice to the boiling milk(step 2), if you are short on time and want it to cook faster, partially cover your saucepan(I do this everytime I cook rice). It really works! Next time, I'll be adding a few strands of saffron in step 1, i.e., while boiling the milk, for auntenticity(really Indian). Another thing, I did grease my ovenproof dish with margarine before putting in the mixture into it for baking. I enjoyed this warm and I think it's better served that way, but, to each his own! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, once again! You have a real awesome mum, do give her a big hug from me!!!

      Will admit from the start that, after reading the other reviews, I started with a full cup of rice, & followed the recipe from there on down, & included the zest & 8 large Medjool dates! What resulted was ONE OF THE NICEST TASTING RICE PUDDINGS I've ever had! I think the juice, zest & dates were outstanding! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Gimme 5 tag]

      This is the first time I have been unable to get a recipe to work for me. :( I cooked the rice and milk mixture for 55 minutes and the rice never absorbed the milk. I threw that batch away and made again using 1 cup of rice to the 2 cups of milk. I got it to work but the rice didn't cook through. The orange flavor was really good. Sorry Boomette1 that I couldn't get your wonderful recipe to work for me.
