Indian Ringer Rice Pudding

We have a local Indian recipe that does excellent rice pudding. Actually they do an excellent buffet in general with really good chaat. (I love chaat buffets. They are so wacky and fun. For me, chaat is a meal as much as anything else and I have been known to buy a chaat selection for dinner just for fun. Let me tell you how much my children love it when I do that…yeah not fans, although they do like Indian food.) 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. It keeps well the next day and freezes well. It’s rich because of the whole milk and coconut so a little goes a long way, but it’s worth it.
