From our local newspaper. The few changes I made were to use basmati rice for plain white rice. You could use jasmine rice if you wish. Most importantly, the original recipe said to cook the pudding three to four hours, but in my Proctor Silex slow cooker, the rice was done in two hours. (I don't know if the reason that happened may have been that I started with hot cooked rice.)
- 3 cups cooked white rice (basmati or jasmine)
- 1⁄2 cup raisins or 1⁄2 cup cranberries
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground cardamom (my addition)
- 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
- 12 ounces half-and-half cream
- 3⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon or 1⁄2 cinnamon stick
- Butter the inside of a 2-2 1/2 quart slow cooker.
- Mix all the ingredients together in the crock pot.
- Cover and cook on LOW 2-2 1/2 hours or until liquid is absorbed. (^^Read intro.^^).
- Serve warm.
This was very tasty for DH, DD (toddler) and I. I used unsalted butter, white Basmati rice cooked without salt, dark raisins, no alcohol vanilla paste, freshly ground cardamom which I think made it more delicious, heavy cream plus some water as that is what I had around, plus the cinnamon stick. The look after the milk had being absorbed was slightly caramel colour which did not look too good but the taste!!! I would make this again with half-and-half and maybe no raisins but I actually thought they were good in this one. Made for Ramadan Tag 2010.
Made exactly as written for the FYC Tag Game @ FF&F using Basmati rice, raisins & grd cinnamon. I faltered at the end w/my decision making. When I ck'd the pudding at 2 hrs, it didn't seem quite done to me so I continued to cook it for the full 2 1/2 hrs & it was more dry than I'd normally prefer - My bad. In retrospect, I should have turned off the crock-pot & allowed the pudding finish cooking as it cooled down. However, adding just a bit of milk brought it back to my desired consistency. Mine also had the caramel-like color mentioned by other reviewers (prob a normal result if raisins are used). We had a guest for dinner & all 3 of us enjoyed this mellow rice pudding, CG. None of us are fond of super-sweet desserts, so this was ideal for us. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. :-)
GREAT recipe. I doubled the recipe. I used sweetened condensed milk and heavy cream for the original recipe and all heavy cream when I doubled it because I only had 1 can of sweetened condensed milk. I added a little salt too and 1/2 of a cube of butter cut in pieces. I added about 1/2 cup of sugar to sweeten everything since the cream is not as sweet as the condensed milk. I also threw in 1/2 a large package of instant vanilla pudding mix. It came out spectacularly! Hope all my additions in this review make sense. Thanks for a yummy recipe ?
