As I recently noted, we suffered the tragic loss of a Chinese restaurant recently. We are still searching for the replacement and so far have had no luck. There is a lot of truly terrible Chinese out there, but very little that is good, even less that is really good and doesn’t mind the noise and ravages of three small children in their restaurant. So as I valiantly continue the search I am going through my beloved Easy Chinese Recipes cookbook and adapting the heck out of her recipes. These recipes are actually easy and my children will even eat them. Time wise, because stir fry is so fast, they make a good substitute for actually picking up Chinese.

Freezes: Yes

e have a local Indian recipe that does excellent rice pudding. Actually they do an excellent buffet in general with really good chaat. As with everywhere else going out is…complicated shall we say right now, but I do love rice pudding. Because of this I came up with the recipe below which is totally a ringer for what you get at a typical Indian restaurant. I also make a “Greek” style rice pudding (i.e. no cardamom or coconut, but add cinnamon and butter), but today’s dessert theme is Indian so here you are. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
