Creamy Rice Pudding infused with Orange Blossom Water & Cardamom

By • October 28, 2010 • 14 Comments



Author Notes: Rice Pudding has so many versions, so I wanted to mix it up with an Indian & Moroccan flavors. Indian style rice pudding is not complete without the addition of cardamon.However on the other hand, the Moroccan style rice pudding is bare without the addition of the utmost aromatic orange blossom water. I made a creamy luscious rice pudding and infused it with the flavor of orange blossom water & cardamom. Toasted pistachios were the perfect topping for this Internationally delectable dessert!onetribegourmet

Serves 4-5

  • 1 cup Basmati Rice, Cooked
  • 2 cups Whole Milk
  • 1/2 cup Heavy Cream
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon Ground Cardamom
  • 1 teaspoon Orange Flower Water
  • 1 handful Toasted & Chopped Pistachios
  1. Please Note: I found that cooked basmati rice makes the process much easier & the process is much quicker. In a large nonstick saute pan over medium heat, combine the cooked rice and milk. Heat until the mixture begins comes to boil.
  2. Decrease the heat to low and cook at a simmer until the mixture begins to thicken, stirring frequently, approximately 5 minutes.
  3. Increase the heat to medium, add the heavy cream, sugar, orange blossom water and cardamom and continue to cook until the mixture just begins to thicken again, approximately 5 to 10 minutes.
  4. Once the mixture just begins to thicken, remove from the heat and transfer the mixture to individual serving dishes or a glass bowl and place plastic wrap directly on the surface of the rice pudding.
  5. Serve chilled with the toasted pistachis topping. I used my Turkish Chai glasses to serve the rice pudding which I bought from the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul.

This was lovely! I made it a couple of weeks ago to bring as part of a dinner to a friend who'd just had some surgery. We allenjoyed it.

So let me report back. I was out of cream, so proceeded to make this with a combination of whole milk and almond milk, cutting back a bit on the orange water, increasing the quantity of rice to compensate and then using toasted almonds on top. It was lovely, but I bet your version with the pistachios and cream is even more so! Thanks.
