This unique and delicious dessert is a wonderful combination of rose and orange blossom waters, infused into a smooth and creamy pudding. You can add cardamom for a subtle change in flavor, or substitute vanilla essence in place of the rose and orange blossom water. Apricots, almonds, and pistachios top this pudding, complementing the overall flavor.
