Pear & Rose Pudding

September 11, 2011

Author Notes: This recipe is an attempt to combine my love for Pears with Rose flavor. You can also try using honey instead of sugar to make it healthier. My next step would be to serve it frozen. I hope everyone enjoys it!Minal

Great! Let me know how it turns out. You can also try making it frozen in an ice cream maker. I just did that and it came out pretty good.

Oh, you had me at "rose"! I'd love to know what kind of rose water you like. I love the Iranian stuff, but it can be hard to find.

Thank you! I usually buy rose water from Indian grocery stores. "Dabur" is a very popular brand for rose water (available in 250 ml bottle) and many other ayurveda items. Hope you are able to find it.

I find myself in Indian-challenged Montana. Can you suggest an on-line source?
