Tapioca Milk Pudding

Cooking Instructions

1. In a saucepan, boil the water. Add the tapioca and simmer over medium heat about 15 minutes, until the tapioca is tender and translucent.

2. In a small sauté pan, heat the ghee. Add the raisins and cashews, and sauté until the cashews turn golden and the raisins plump. Remove them from the pan with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.

3. In a 3-quart saucepan, heat the milk. Add the sugar, cardamom, nutmeg, raisins, cashews, and the tapioca, and simmer over low heat for 5 minutes.

4. Serve hot, warm, or chilled, sprinkled with pistachios.
