Sweet Rice Pudding!

Sweet rice pudding is a wonderful dessert that is made from minimum ingredients and is therefore uncomplicated.  I loved it as a kid and still adore it at 18. P.s Its so easy to make yet tastes so amazing especially when garnished with almonds and crushed cardamom.And since I like to celebrate my lazy days with minimum effort and lovely food, I am  super infatuated with this dessert 😛p0

Ingredients:

  • 2.5 litre milk
  • 1/4 kg rice
  • 15 cardamom crushed
  • 300 g white granulated sugar
  • 15- 20 almonds for garnishing (Crush half of them)

How to go about it

  • Soak rice in 2 cups water for 1.5 hrs
  • After having soaked them for 1.5 hrs, blend them in a blender(along with the water in which they were soaking)
  • Bring the milk to boil in a large saucepan
  • Put blended rice into the boiling milk. Stir for 5-7 minutes to incorporate rice into milk.(Stirring is important as the mixture can get stuck to the bottom of the pan)
  • Reduce heat levels. Leave this mixture to simmer for 1 1/4 hr. HOWEVER keep stirring on regular intervals all this while, to prevent sticking and burning.
  • When the rice and milk mixture has reached thick almost homogeneous consistency, add sugar and stir to incorporate it.
  • Put crushed cardamom and almonds into it. Stir.
  • Pour the mixture into pudding bowls.
  • let it cool in fridge for 1 hour or more.
  • Garnish it with whole almonds.
  • Serve.

  2. Nothing beats a good rice pudding, and my Grandma taught me how .. She had one of those old fashioned kitchen ovens set at the side of her fire.. The oven had a large oven and top separate one .. She always cooked the rice pud in the top one it would take about 2 hours depending on the heat from the fire.. I would love the skin.. ( as it was made with creamy milk ) and of course that dollop of jam 🙂 Thank you for bringing back memories
