My husband loves rice pudding and I always cook extra rice. I just made this recipe up and we love it! It has some indian spices in it to make it a little different. Hope you like it!

I was searching for a recipe to use my leftover jasmine rice at breakfast. This was VERY GOOD! I paired the ingredient amounts down because I only had 2 cups of rice. I used 1 1/2 cups of milk and 2T cornstarch, but the same amount of butter and vanilla. I didn't have cardamom, so I substituted a dash of coriander. I only used 1/4 tsp cinnamon, a dash of mace and no saffron. It would be easy to overdo the spice in this dish. I only used 2T brown sugar (which was sweet enough for me). I also cooked it a bit longer to allow the rice to absorb more of the milk and soften since my rice came straight out of the 'fridge. I will definitely make it again!
