Stove Top Rice Pudding Using Uncooked Rice
When I was a kid Mom would make rice pudding as a special treat. This recipe is similar to how she made it. Enjoy it as much as we did growing up.
Stove-Top Rice Pudding Using Uncooked Rice
I have several different recipes here for rice pudding. If I order Chinese take=out, I always end up with left over rice and one idea is to make Rice Pudding using Cooked Rice out if it, Of course left over rice is great for making fried rice too. But when I get the urge for Rice Pudding, I always seem to have no cooked rice around. So here is a simple recipe to make it on the Stove-top. (There is not much difference in making Rice Pudding using cooked or uncooked rice. Sure you get a jump when you use cooked rice, but rice only take 20 minutes to cook, so it is not that much of a jump. )
This Stove-Top Rice Pudding Using Uncooked Rice is cooked on the stove top. I don’t know about you, but I hate the extra dish I have to wash when I bake it in the oven. Give me a stove-top recipe and I am good to go. Sure it might be a little more work, but overall it’s a piece of cake.
We just throw these ingredients in a heavy bottom pan and bring the rice to a simmer and cook for 40-45 minutes until the mixture gets creamy.
A few words of caution here, the milk will easily scorch is heated too hard. I like just bringing it to a simmer and I stir occasionally to prevent scorching.
The Thickening Ingredients
Milk and eggs are used as a thickening agent for the Rice Pudding. Make sure you temper the milk/egg mixture first by adding some hot cooked rice liquid into before pouring the milk and eggs into the rice. I also add in my raisins at this time.
We now heat it up until it thickens. Do not boil at this point. Remove from the heat and add a topping if desired.
I sprinkled a small amount of cinnamon sugar on top, but straight ground cinnamon or nutmeg work well too.
If you want to lighten the calories some feel free to use a sugar substitute of your choice for the sugar.
You decide the best way of serving it.
Traditionally it is served cold. But if you want a real treat, try it warm. It is yummy.
Enjoy making your rice pudding.
