    UmmIbrahim's Note:

    Thai red rice has a firm texture and a nutty flavor giving this dessert a unique flavor and appearance. Be sure to stir often throughout the cooking process so the pudding doesn't get stuck to the bottom of the pot.

    1. 1
      In a large saucepan combine both rices, sugar, salt, 3 cups water, and 3 cups milk. Bring it to a boil and then let it simmer over low heat until half the liquid has evaporated. This will take about 30-40 minute.
    2. 2
      Now add in the rose water, ground cardamom, and the can of coconut milk. Continue simmering another 30-40 minute The mixture should be fairly thick.
    3. 3
      Now add in the lemon zest and 1/2 cup half and half. Check the sweetness and add more sugar if you feel it is necessary. Stir until the mixture is creamy and remove from the heat.

      Delicious pudding! I used rice milk and a little more coconut milk like UmmBinat to be dairy free. For sweetener I used jaggery and halved the amount because we don't like it very sweet - that was just perfect. Will make it again - thanks for posting! Made for Ramadan Tag 2010.

      Time consuming but worth it for how good the pudding tastes. I am assuming the rice is cooked covered, correct? Substituted dates for golden raisins and jasmine rice for plain white rice. The lemon was not stirred into the pudding but used as a garnish. A delicious combination of flavors especially the nutty red rice and perfumy jasmine. Added a heaping 1/4 teaspoon of cardamom. Love the pistachios on top! Does help the cook if the ingredients are listed in order. Reviewed for Ramadan Tag.

      I really enjoyed this. The pudding has a nice lemon flavour. I did use a bit less lemon zest but it was lemony enough. I grated it on the small side of a box grater. The recipe never says when to add the golden rasins so I decided not to at the end. I can see they would taste good in this, though I think DH would prefer without anyway. I made this without half-and-half because we are dairy free and just added additional coconut milk to be creamy. For the milk I used rice milk which worked fine. I will make this again. Made for Ramadan Tag.
