“Hasta La Vista Baby” Cardamom Rice Pudding

This rice pudding has a nice twist to it, definitely not your traditional rice pudding (I know, I grew up with many, many rice puddings in my lifetime). It takes time and a lot of stirring, but it’s worth the effort, trust me on that. I love the flavours that the spices add and the crunch of the pistachios add a nice crunchy texture to this dish!
