    UmmBinat's Note:

    This is my favorite rice pudding. It is nice and creamy but not too heavy. The Persian version of rice pudding is very simplistic, yet beautiful in flavor masha Allah. Sheer Berenj on its own is simply made with rice, water, milk and rosewater. I love it because it is not too sweet you add a sweet topping such as a good honey or a sweet preserve (jam).

      I thought I would miss the sugar in the pudding but surprisingly not! After stirring the milk into the rice I increased the heat to medium-high *just* until the milk was very hot but *NOT* boiling. For presentation the rice was served in a deep serving bowl, pistachios arranged around the edge, a drizzle of local blackberry honey around the edge, too. Two dates were thinly sliced and arranged on top with a spoonful of locally made boysenberry-raspberry jam in the center. Finally, a sprinkle of ground cardamom over the surface. The rose water was reduced to 1 tablespoon. Did you mean 1/2 cup rose water? Is that correct? Reviewed for NA*ME/Summer 2012.

      I agree that is is nice & light which is very nice. It didn't thicken enough for me; actually it loosened up after it had sat for a bit. (?) If I hadn't finished my rosewater :o I would have added more. I went ahead & added some very nice lavender honey to the whole dish - 1/3- 1/2c total. Delicious. But very soupy. Off to have some now. Made for NA*ME Tag,
