    I am a rice pudding lover and this was a very nice version. Recipe worked perfectly and my mango, though tinned, was pretty and refreshing on top. Made for ZWT9.

    Excellent recipe! I added raisins in ours and left out the mangoes on top. The cardamom gave it an incredible flavor that I just couldn't get enough of! I served mine with lots of homemade whipped cream and 8 servings became 2 :)

    Very nice! The texture is quite different from what we're used to, daughter #1 said that it felt more like semolina pudding than rice pudding in her mouth. The flavor was not too sweet, just like we like our puddings, and also seemed to be something I'd make for breakfast. I didn't have fat free sweetened condensed on hand, so I used regular. Thanks, Jan!
