Rice pudding is one of my favourite .. i normally just use regular rice , such as jasmine rice . I do have a different recipe that uses jasmine rice , with milk and coconut milk . And although that takes longer to make , but i think it has the best flavor . Now if you’re looking for something really quick and easy , yet still tasty , i would go with this recipe .
Yesterday was one of those morning , i was stuck at home , and i had to stay home because i had to wait for the cable guy to come over to hook it up . And so i was planning to make pumpkin bread , i’ve got all the ingredients except for baking soda . It is hard to believe that i do not have baking soda , i usually do , but due to the moving this past week , obviously i left my baking soda somewhere along the way . I was hungry for something , so mid morning i made this rice pudding , using arborio rice , very easy and quick , and it’s super creamy .
1 cup of water
1/2 tbsp. of unsalted butter
pinch of salt
1/2 cup of arborio rice ( rice for risotto )
2 cups of low fat milk
4-5 tbsp. of sugar
1 tsp. of vanilla extract
few dashes of cinnamon
1. In a small pot , heat up the water and salt and butter , bring to boil . Then add the rice . Simmer , and cover for about 15 minutes until the rice soaked up all the water .
2. Meanwhile , bring to boil the milk , sugar and cinnamon , then simmer . Once the rice is done , place the rice into the milk mixture . And keep stirring medium low heat , until the milk mostly gone .
3. Remove from the heat , you can eat it warm or cold . I like it warm . Sprinkle with cinnamon and you can use whipped cream too , i prefer just with cinnamon .
