  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup uncooked basmati rice not fast-cooking
  • 1/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/3 cup golden raisins
  • 3 tablespoons slivered almonds
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom


  1. Whisk together all ingredients in a slow-cooker. Cover and cook on low for 3 1/2 to 4 hours.
  2. Check after 3 1/2 hours. It is done when it has a thick pudding consistency.
  3. Serve hot, warm, room temperature, or chilled.

Recipe Notes

Note: The rice in the pudding will continue to soak up milk when chilled. If pudding is too thick or seems "dry" after chilling, stir in a little milk, cream, or sweetened condensed milk to get to desired consistency.
