Raisins have been loved by mankind since ancient times. The Romans loved them so much that they handed them out to the winners of sporting competitions, and believed they could cure anything from poisoning to old age. Our love of raisins has led to thousands of recipes that use them as a prominent ingredient, especially for baking cakes. This raisin recipe, however, is a milky pudding that fits into the same family as rice pudding and tapioca. Here, I use ground rice and almonds to give it an added nutty flavour. Based on the brands I used, each portion should be about 235 calories.
