Simple Rice Pudding

I am really not a sweets person :). However, at times when I feel like eating something sweet, the simplest thing I turn to is the rice pudding. Today, instead of using normal sugar, I used brown sugar and topped the rice pudding with fresh fruit. 

Basmati Rice - 1/2 cup
Milk - 3 cups
Sugar - 4 tsp(brown or regular sugar, adjust according to taste)
Cardamom Powder - 1/4 tsp
Raisins - few
Almonds - 6, roughly chopped
Any seasonal fruit - 2 tbsp, chopped

Method of Preparation:
1. Rinse the basmati rice and soak it in warm water for 45 minutes.
2. In a heavy bottomed vessel, heat the milk until it starts boiling.
3. Crush the soaked rice with fingers, so that the rice grains break into small pieces. 
4. Add the broken rice to the boiling milk and let the rice cook on low heat.
5. Keep stirring in between. Once the rice gets cooked, add the sugar, raisins, chopped almonds and cardamom powder.
6. Mix well and let the rice pudding thicken a little bit, before taking off heat.
7. You can serve the rice pudding either cold or warm.
8. Top the rice pudding with your favorite fruit and enjoy.


  1. mmmm...I love the natural sweetness of the fruit accented by the brown sugar. This is definitely my kind of "sweets"!! ;)
