I'm making an indian rice pudding (with almond milk and almond paste mixed into the basmati rice), and it's soooo good to be able to add cinnamon with the other spices

That sounds wonderful!
Would you mind sharing the recipe? Thanks!

I too am complying almost 100%, have lost a few lbs and feel amazing. I tried Mana bread for the first time in ages the other day. Toasted it up nice and crispy, it was heaven. Best of all no neg effects. Yeah!

I really thought I'd miss some of my old type 0+non beneficials, but the new superfoods are quickly becoming favorites.

Glad to be here amognst other gatherers, gathering new info, and gathering new ideas!

U can toast manna bread ???!!!  
I was under the impression that it was a live food, hence couldn't stay on the countertop (room temperature)  for more than an hour and had to be eaten in it's natural state ...

Hi Lisalea,
The manna bread is very good toasted under the broiler. It is raw before it is toasted but Dr. D. doesn't frown on cooking food. At least that is my assumption since I do cook asparagus, yams, zucchini, etc.

Cordially,
Margaret

Hey, guess what?  According to the dog scale (!) at the vet's, I have lost 23 lbs since "buckling down" on the BTD a while back--and now, just think, with the GTD:  notches unknown!

Hi everyone
here it goes:

Almond Rice Pudding (Indian Rice Pudding)

150g of basmati rice, white or brown
1.5L of milk, I used almond, but whichever you prefer
agave syrup to taste, or stevia
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground fennel seeds
1 tsp ghee or oil
2 tbspn almond paste

melt the ghee and cook the rice in it gently for five mins to coat the rice.
then add the milk (I used almond milk and added the 'meal' from when I made the milk at this point), heat up and cook on a low heat for an hour.
now ladies and gents, you MUST keep an eye on it and stir it regularly cos it sticks like nothing on earth when it's in the last 20 mins of cooking.  

The rice cooks down into the thickened milk until you can't tell it's rice anymore mmmmm, the nut paste goes in and cook very gently for another ten mins, add the spices and sweetener to suit your taste.   I either chill to eat later (yeah right) or eat warm - I loved it!

Hope you like it.  Play around with the spices

Thank you so much! Looks fabulous!

Two little questions:
Approx how much agave did you use, and what is almond paste? Is it marzipan? I'd have thought that might be a little hard to mix into the, erm, mix. I've got to try this at the weekend!

I have that Manna Bread is listed under Carbohydrates. I get it in the Freezer at the HFS and put it in my fridge and my family usually eats it within a few days.

I'm assuming that all the other foods in that catagory are able to be cooked, so guessing so should the bread??

I am a gatherer too.  I made the flax bread the other day.  Very good, but freaked me out when I figured all the calories. It also made my stomach very grumbly... millet, brown basmati rice and barley did also.  My body does not like grains in any way.  After I eat them I feel sluggish and hungry again soon after, not to mention the bathroom problems. Is anyone else carb sensitive?

I ate Ezekiel bread for lunch back when I was an O nonnie and I about went to sleep.  I love carbs, but they but me to sleep in a bad way.

Ezekiel bread is sprouted wheat, right?  So that means Gatherers cannot eat it, right again?

I tasted cottage cheese today.  It did not kill me.  

I could not find canned peaches in the grocery that did not have sugar, so I bought Gerber baby peaches.  I love pureed food anyway, and I can mix it with cottage cheese for a quick snack.

People at work think I am crazy because I am changing what foods I can and cannot eat.  Oh well, I cannot explain it, except to say that Dr. D has done more research and now these are better choices.  How does that sound?

Erm... sorry ...but cinnamon is never added to sweet rice pudding. It's usually cardamom. Cinnamon is a meat tendarizer...and usually used in savoury dishes.

That's interesting, accidental chef!  Here in North America, cinnamon is much more commonly associated with desserts and baked goods and sweet things than with savoury dishes.  We use it in savoury too...but not as much.

Yes Gumby, I agree with you. It's a little quirk of Indian desserts to have cinnamon If you have an opportunity to use carmamom instead of cinnamon for Indian sweet dishes you'll really taste the difference.

Clove, cinnamon, fennel etc are spices which are normally *associated* with non veg dishes, in India. So much so that older generation Orthodox Hindus will not eat vegetarian dishes like veg kurma/korma and veg biriyani/pilaf coz these spices are used.

Yes...interesting indeed!

Hi Rochelle,

I ground some almonds in a pestle and mortar to make a smooth paste, like a nut butter I suppose, but less sticky.  

I used a dessertspoon of agave, but again that's down to taste, I was in dire need of something sweet and comforting lol.

Hope you enjoy it.

Hi, I swap between Green Cardamom seeds and Cinnamon, depending on my mood, both are delicious.  But Cinnamon is a diamond food so it won on this occasion.   Go with whichever you like best.

The cooking method is based on indian rice pudding but as for flavour you can go mad and add what you like, I sometimes add flaked almonds for the last ten mins of cooking, and at a friends house they decorated it with gold leaf, dried fruit and flaked nuts.   Looks fabulous and tastes it too.

I just love the texture, it's like a warm hug

When we get more basmati rice this weekend, I'm going to make this recipe. It just sounds too good!

Cardamom does give a totally different flavor, I agree. It's not as warm and 'sweet' as cinnamon, but very aromatic and deliciously spicy in its own way. I would happily use either spice in this pudding.

Interesting information about the Indian use of spices in non-vegetarian dishes, accidental chef. Thanks for sharing that with us. I've just found a new Indian restaurant not too far from us here, and haven't had a chance to talk much with the manager or the wait staff, so this knowledge will come in handy when asking questions.

So, all that is keeping me from being a Hunter is lots of adrenaline and long index fingers?   Bummmer.  I must have remeasured myself a dozen times and no matter how I push the fingers around, the index are longer on both hands and I can't claim hair tigger reactions on adrenaline.  It looks like long or short torso and long or short leg bones don't matter much it's those index fingers and being O that really determine Hunter status.  Oh, well  gather I must.  
I do like the cottege cheese back and chocolate.
