Indian Rice Pudding (Ayurvedic)

(recipe, Carrie Stewart)


  1. 6 cups milk
  2. 1½ cups basmati rice
  3. a few strands of saffron
  4. 15 cardamom seeds (not pods!)
  5. 2 Tbsp. date syrup
  6. ½ cup raisins
  7. ½ cup toasted sunflower seeds
  8. ¼ cup dessicated coconut.


  1. Wash rice until water runs clear. Combine rice, milk, saffron, raisins, and cardamon seeds and cook with water on low heat for about an hour. When rice is done, stir in sweetener, garnish with the coconut and serve. NB: You should not eat this pudding with weak digestion as it is heavy to digest! It gives strength to all the body’s tissues, and is especially good for sperm!
