I'm going to regret posting this, because I am then going to want to make it!
Lovely and creamy, without the addition of an egg.
3/4 c rice.
4 c milk. ( can do 3 milk & 1 cream, or 1 can coconut milk/ cream and made up to 4 cups with milk)
3 tbsp sugar
2 tsp vanilla ( I use vanilla paste, love the tiny black seeds showing)
Optional addins: sultanas and or lemon rind ( I always add the rind)
Cook all but sugar and rind over a low heat in pot, stirring often ( so rice doesn't stick) until almost all the liquid is absorbed and rice is tender. Stir in sugar and rind.
My cooktop is gas, so I use a simmer mat to get a real low temp and avoid catching.

It was so dry. Very disappointing. Cooked it slowly and had heaps of milk in it. maybe I had too much rice. Was looking forward to it too and daughter wasn't very impressed at my first attempt. Hangs head.

what a bummer. hate that when it happens, but treat it as a learning curve. what recipe did you use?

ryelands1, Apr 21, 10:28am
kinda made it from a few. So next time will stick to just making it from one recipe

Needs a very small amount of rice - I made one yesterday, 4 cups of milk but only 1/2 cup of rice

Creamy Rice Pudding

Yummy, had this last night and its the best rice pudding Ive ever tasted. I got it out of the NZ Womens Weekly, it's a Jo Seager one.
8 heaped tablespoons aborio rice
1/4 cup water
300ml milk
300ml cream (or you can use all milk)
Large knob butter
2 tblspns vanilla essence
4 tbspns castor sugar.
Place rice, water, milk and cream in saucepan. Bring to the boil, then turn down to a very gentle simmer. Stir every so often for 20 mins, until the rice has swelled up and thickened. Rice should be soft, but have a little bite to it. Stir in the butter, vanilla and sugar and stir until dissolved. Pour into a dish and place under gentle grill for four to five mins until a brown skin develops. Serve with cream. Serves 4.

Molly, please share your recipe. I have not had a rice pudding for at least 10 years.

I haven't made one for years either and usually just the Edmonds cookbook one, interested in other recipe, Jo Seagars one sounds nice and quick instead of 2hours!

I've made the recipe posted by petal1955 but without the water and I put my dish of pudding inside a dish of boiling water in the oven - the steam seems to keep it moist.
Never tried the stovetop one but have read various recipes with egg in :-)
