Added to this Deepa did shower me with the following award. A little about the award
"“Nice Matters Award is for those blogger who are nice people; good blog friends and those who inspire good feelings and inspiration. Also for those who are a positive influence on our blogging world.” "
Its only fair that I pass on this on to the nicest people I met personally from the blogosphere, my friends from the bay area and also to my dearest friend Rina,TC, Ash, Revathi, Mythreye, TasteTinkerer and AK.
I still need to come up with a recipe to use the morsels but I did put all the nuts to work with Nutty Rice Pudding. Rice pudding tasted extra special may be because of love it came with.
1 cup rice boiled
1 pint whole milk
2 cups of mixed nuts chopped ( I soaked the nut in hot water for 2 hrs and peeled the almond skin and chopped into small chunks)
2-3 elaichi finely powered
½ cup sugar
1 tbsp ghee
½ can condense milk
Boil rice in pressure cooker
Heat a tbsp of ghee in a pan add nuts and fry for a minute, then add boiled rice
Add milk, elachi and sugar to the above.
Allow it to boil on slow for about 10-15 minutes, mixing continually
Add condensed milk and mix once again
I know this is loaded with calories but once in a while its good to indulge in pure bliss. Keeping the chain alive I would like to pass this on to Mishmash ,Shankari, Ramya and Mansi.
Thanks again Deepa for the wonderful gift.
