Persian Rice Pudding (Sheer Berenj)

“This is my favorite rice pudding. It is nice and creamy but not too heavy. The Persian version of rice pudding is very simplistic, yet beautiful in flavor masha Allah. Sheer Berenj on its own is simply made with rice, water, milk and rosewater. I love it because it is not too sweet you add a sweet topping such as a good honey or a sweet preserve (jam). Modified from a recipe found on http://mypersiankitchen.com.”
