Wonderful!! I made just as directed using both cinnamon and nutmeg. I added the raisins shortly after adding the milk so that they would plump up. This smelled so good while cooking and came out sweet, creamy, spicy and delicious - thanks for sharing the recipe!

I love this! It whips up so fast and easily, I used brown rice (cooked longer), lowfat milk, and 2 teaspoons of rosewater and a little cardamom. I sweetened it with 1/4 cup Sun Crystals to fit my dietary constraints. It would be awesome with some chopped pistachios on top/mixed in. This will be my standby for rice pudding from now on! I can't believe I had it in my cookbook for so long without trying it.
