Izzy Special Dessert
It is my birthday today and i wanted to treat myself with something sweet, even though i am not a big fan of sweet, i love my spices and i love chicken and fish. The recipe i am going to share is simple and tasty. I have been through some history books for the desserts of ancient people and did find some extraordinary desserts people have been enjoying throughout history and will be sharing them in coming days.
I think Arabs have some of the best sweet dishes in the world but Brits and Americans are not far behind, Romans loved their desserts with fruits and honey. The recipe i am going to share is an must have dish in all sorts of ceremonies and occasions in India and Pakistan. Rice pudding is made differently all over Indian sub-continent but they all have one thing in common and that is taste, simply yummy.
