Sweet Rice (Zarda)
July 23, 2006

This turned out well, but it originally calls for WAY too much sugar. I only put 3 cups instead of 4, and it was still a bit too sweet. Everyone ate it and said they enjoyed it, but there was a discussion about the sweetness and the amount of sugar called for. I had to use ground cardamom (couldn't find whole). I also made it in the rice maker, to save time and space. I added the food color and 1 teaspoon cardamom to the rice maker with the rice and water (no soaking). When that was finished I heated 1 1/2 teaspoons cardamom in oil and added cooked rice, sugar, and 2 cups of skim milk. I let this simmer about 5 minutes, and added the nuts, fruits, and ricotta. It was delicious in the end.
