⁠⠀
INGREDIENTS:⁠⠀
¼ cup white rice, washed & soaked⁠⠀
4 cups almond milk or coconut milk⁠⠀
1 cup water⁠⠀ ⠀
1 Lucky Iron Fish ⁠⠀
7 tbsp any sweetener of your choice⁠⠀
1 tsp cardamom powder⁠⠀
⁠⠀
➡️ Optional:⁠⠀
1 tbsp rose water⁠⠀
¼ cup chopped pistachios⁠⠀
¼ cup chopped almonds⁠⠀
⁠⠀
⁠⠀
DIRECTIONS:⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Wash the rice till the water runs clear. Then soak it while you start the recipe. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Bring the almond/ coconut milk + the water to a rolling boil. Add 2-3 drops of lemon juice or any acidic ingredient. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Next, add the Lucky Iron Fish and continue boiling for 10 minutes. Remove the Lucky Iron Fish (or Leaf) at the end of 10 mins. Turn down the heat to medium. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Drain the rice and add it to the iron-enriched liquid. Stir until the rice is fully cooked - almost mushy in texture. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Then, stir in the sweetener, cardamom powder, and any of the optional toppings and cook on low heat for another 5 minutes.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Once all the flavours are combined and the texture is only slightly runny, you can turn off the heat. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Enjoy this hot or cold! ⁠⠀
