  • “I loved this! It’s much like an Indian rice pudding, except without the individual grains of rice and with extra goodies added.I didn’t have any rice flour, so I just ground some uncooked rice in my coffee grinder…it worked fine.Next time I’m going to make this with orange flower water in place of the rose water, just for some variation. Thanks for sharing!”
