Mandira’s notes: This is an easy to put together pudding. In fact its one of the easiest I  have ever made. Plus it has the distinct advantage of using ingredients that are almost always available at home. I used a few pieces of apricot along with the raisins. You could add any chopped dry fruits that you have at hand. The nutmeg adds a pleasant flavour to the pudding. Make sure to have it evenly spread out all over the top of the pudding.. eating bites of concentrated nutmeg is not nice!!
