Rice Pudding Day 3 Yummy recipes to tempt your fussy eater

Nothing tastes quite as good as Rice Pudding! It's variations are found in nearly all the parts of the world. Recipes can vary greatly even within a single country. It can be a dessert or a pudding, hot or cold, boiled or baked - depending on the taste. There area number of variations depending on the preparation methods and the ingredients used. In India it's fondly and famously known as Kheer, prepared in almost every household. So today on Rice Pudding Day I am happy to share with you some delicious recipes from around the world

Indian Rice Pudding (Kheer) For Toddlers And Fussy Eaters

This is my recipe for this staple Indian favourite

Ingredients For Kheer

  1. 1/2 cup basmati rice
  2. 6 cups whole milk
  3. 1 teaspoon ground cardamom
  4. 1/2 cup sugar
  5. 1 teaspoon rosewater, or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  6. 3 tablespoons minced unsalted pistachios or almonds, plus extra for garnish

Method To Prepare Kheer

  1. In a large, heavy-bottomed pot, bring the rice, milk, and cardamom to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly with a heat-safe spoon to help keep the milk from burning
  2. Reduce the heat so that the milk is gently simmering and cook for 45 to 50 minutes, stirring often
  3. The rice should be tender and the milk will have reduced by half, giving it a porridge-like consistency
  4. Add the sugar, rosewater or vanilla, and pistachios
  5. Stir and turn off the heat
  6. Serve either warm or chilled, garnished with extra pistachios
  7. Goes well with fresh fruit too

Turkish Style Baked Rice Pudding For Your Fussy Eater

Ingredients For Turkish Style Baked Rice Pudding

  1. 1/2 cup uncooked rice
  2. 4 3/4 cups whole milk
  3. 1 cup sugar
  4. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  5. 2 tablespooncornstarch
  6. 1 egg yolk beaten with 3 tbsp. milk

Method For Preparing Turkish Style Baked Rice

  1. Preheat the oven to 360 F (180 C)
  2. Wash the rice and place it in a large saucepan with enough water to cover it by about 1/2 inch
  3. Bring it to a boil and reduce the heat
  4. Let the rice simmer gently until the rice is soft, about 5 minutes
  5. Reserve about1 cup of the milk. Add the remaining 3 3/4 cups milk, and the sugar and vanilla extract to the rice
  6. Bring the mixture to a boil
  7. Reduce the heat and let it boil very gently for about 10 minutes
  8. Using a whisk, mix together the reserved milk and the corn-starch until it's smooth
  9. While stirring, gradually pour this mixture into the rice
  10. Turn up the heat and continue stirring the pudding until scalding
  11. When the pudding thickens, continue to stir and cook for about 2 minutes more
  12. Remove from the heat and fill small, ovenproof dessert cups, clay cups or disposable aluminium pudding cups with the hot mixture
  13. Using a spoon, drizzle a small amount of the egg yolk and milk mixture into the centre of each dessert cup
  14. With the back of the spoon, use a light, circular motion to swirl the egg yolk from the centre to the edges so it spreads evenly over the top of each cup
  15. Bake the pudding cups until the tops are nicely browned, about 20 minutes
  16. Let the cups cool at room temperature then refrigerate them for several hours before serving
