This is an old rice pudding recipe from the Capitol Diner in Jersey City, NJ. I'm not sure if the diner is still there, but their rice pudding was phenomenal!

I think the recipe means to start with cooked rice. I started with uncooked and its impossible to cook rice in 15 mins. I had to keep adding milk. 30 mins later rice still hard in the middle.<br/>Cooked seems to make sense. I try it next time with cooked.<br/>Tasted great when finally finished. But, not diner consistency. Diner pudding is usually more custardy. Mabye cooked rice will change the texture.
