Rice Pudding with Rose Water


My mother passed me this recipe. It is a rice pudding recipe that is special because it reminds me of childhood. Rosewater is wonderful in many desserts, especially in this recipe for rice pudding. This recipe is special to me because of the rosewater. It adds a flavor that takes you to another part of the world where you imagine yourself walking through a souk. Serve chilled.
