Day 2 and the journey keeps going on. Well for today I present to you a delightful dessert that is fulfilling but light and not very sweet. Again it is a family favourite as we have diabetes running int he family, we try to reduce as much sugar as possible or use alternatives. Ok, back to what is important, how do we make a healthy and light in sugar rice pudding.

- 1 liter of Milk (low fat if you may)
- 1 cup of egyptian rice
- 1/2 cup brown sugar (I used the diet one)
- 2 tbsps rose water
- Zafron
- Chopped almods for garnish (optional)

1. Wash the rice and let it bath in water over night or for at least couple of hours.
2. When ready to cook the rice, in a deep pan pour the milk and mix the sugar in it until it melts on the oven.
3. Sieve the rice from the water bath and add it to the milk mixture on the oven.
4. Let is cook for around 30-40 mins on low temperature while stirring from time to time.
5. When the rice is cooked, it will absorb the milk mixture and becomes sticky, turn off the oven and add the rose water and zafron.
6. Stir couple of times, and scoop the rice pudding in the serving bowls you wish.
7. (optional) sprinkle some chopped almonds on top of the rice pudding for garnish.
8. Serve..

I personally put them in the fridge to cool down. Sometimes I like having them hot. Depends on how you wish to serve them.
