Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup basmati rice
  • 4 cardamom pods, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 8 ounces mascarpone

  2. 2. In a bowl, combine cream, sugar, mascarpone, and rose water (if using). Whip mixture with an electric mixer at medium speed, until thickened.
  3. 3. Stir in rice. Spoon into eight bowls or dessert glasses. Cover and chill until cold, at least 1 hour. Just before serving, sprinkle with chopped pistachios.
