Afghan Rice Pudding (shir berenj)Submitted by: HOMAIRA
IntroductionMany people consider afghan foods very unhealthy but if someone is health and weight concious, even unhealthy foods can be made in healthy version Many people consider afghan foods very unhealthy but if someone is health and weight concious, even unhealthy foods can be made in healthy version
2 cups Rice
2 cups nonfat Milk
6 tsp sugar (or better is sugar substitute)
1 tbsp cardamom
Nuts (almonds, walnuts or pishtachios) just a little for garnish
When it is cooked, mix cardamom and cover the dish. Keep in on low heat for a while.
Then put it in a dish and garnish it with raisins, nuts and if you like also you can garnish it with cinnamon, but I love it with cardamom and nuts only.
A great dessert is ready and you can serve it hot or cold depends on you, but usually in Afghanistan it is served cold, but in winter it is fantastice to have it hot with a cup of tea:-)

Delicious.I put 1 oz brown rice, 1 pint skim milk, (much less rice to milk) 2 tsp honey/sugar/syrup, cardoman and lemon zest, into an oven proof bowl and bake it covered overnight in a slow oven.The result is light and creamy. I use sugar substitute or sweet fruit to sweeten for fewer cals. - 5/13/11
