rice pudding This is a hearty dessert that’s super easy to make. Buy store-bought rice pudding and serve in teacup-size bowls. Sprinkle with cardamom and toasted slivered almonds.

rose-flavoured lassiA sweet drink is as good as any dessert. Mix two or three drops of rosewater into vanilla yogurt; add a splash of milk and pour over ce cubes.
