Mandira’s notes:  This is the first time I attempted a pudding that has meringue and was pleasantly surprised to discover it wasnt that difficult. I think my meringue got a tad too brown, all because of my mortal fear of serving partially cooked food. It would probably taste better if it were a lighter brown. The rice-milk mixture(minus the egg) reminded me of kheer. The egg only seems to thicken the pudding at the time of baking. Vegetarians may leave that out and cook the rice and milk for longer to get a thicker consistency.(thats my guess but I am no expert). A added a few drops of vanilla essence to the rice-milk mixture when I incorporated the egg mainly to avoid the eggy smell.

Note to Lakshmi– do the pictures inspire you to undertake the “painful beating egg whites” process?
