I've been interested in etegami ever since I saw Debbie's blog on etegami here:
Here is one of my first attempts. Etegami consists of a painting (watercolor), some words and a name seal. The objects painted are everyday objects. Learn more at Debbie's awesome site. Her pumpkin inspired me to paint the one I have sitting on the dining room table.

I like rice pudding that is simple and has no eggs. The coconut milk adds a really delicious flavor.
1 cup cooked basmati rice (or other long grain rice)
1 cup whole milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
3/4 cup coconut milk (I like Thai Kitchen brand)
1/4 cup sugar (you can use white or brown)
1/4 tsp cardamom
1/3 cup raisins (dark or golden or other dried fruit)
1/2 tsp vanilla
couple threads of saffron
In a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, combine rice and whole milk. Heat til boiling and simmer for 5 minutes. Stir frequently. Mixture will thicken. Add heavy cream, coconut milk, sugar, cardamom and saffron and cook for about 7-10 minutes until mixture thickens again. Remove from heat and add raisins and vanilla. Transfer to a bowl and put plastic wrap directly on the surface to prevent skin from forming.
Delicious warm, room temp or cold. Feeds about 4 depending on serving size.
