Think rice pudding is boring? We bet this cardamom-saffron rice pudding recipe will change your mind -- and you can make it in your slow cooker, allowing the fragrant spices to gently infuse tender grains of rice.
8 cups of whole milk
1 cup sugar
1 cup rice – wash very well
A pinch of salt
generous pinch of saffron
3 Cardamom – you could use either the powdered version or make your own by grinding the seeds
1 teaspoon vanilla
Cashews and raisins – sautéed in ghee or butter
Soak the saffron strands in 2 teaspoons of lukewarm milk.
Mix together the milk, rice and sugar into the slow cooker.
Cook on high for one hour and then on low for about 6 hours or more.
Stir to ensure the rice is not sticking to the pan or clumping, but do this no more than once or twice as you are not supposed to open a slow cooker too many times during the cooking process.
The rice may seem whole and lumpy but once you stir the mixture, it will break down well.
About half an hour or even an hour before removing, add the saffron, cardamom powder and vanilla essence. Mix well. Add in the cashews and raisins.
It turns a nice caramel color, although you can stop cooking it when it starts turning pink. If it’s very thick, thin it out with some milk before serving.
