Rose-scented Basmati Rice Pudding | Ohh, Lah Lah!

It’s a dessert!  Readers with a sweet tooth, rejoice! 

I have yet to put one up on PK, although they’re made around here occasionally.  This one is dead simple.  Mostly because it starts with leftover Indian-spiced Basmati.  If you’ve been around the Kitchen much, you’ll remember how much I love curries.  For the pudding, I used the leftover rice that I had served with a delicate curry I made late last week.  That lovely rice will go with lots of dishes and it smells heavenly.  But really, you could probably use just about any plain-ish leftover rice.   Just don’t go using Uncle Ben’s Mushroom Explosion or anything like that.

This also gave me a chance to use the rest of my special Ohh, Lah Lah from the good folks at Snowville Creamery.  Snowville is working on developing a new product (Ohh, Lah Lah)  that is essentially 2% milk that’s been cold nano-filtered and reduced 2  1/2 times to make it thick and creamy.  It’s low-fat, but you’d never know it, it’s almost like cream.  It’s fabulous and not in stores yet so I squee’d when I got the chance to try it first.  This turned into a perfect use for it.  I ran out and need more already.  I have so many other ideas.  What do you say, Snowville?

And for bonus points, this dessert takes ten minutes, start to finish.
