Rizogalo - Rice Pudding

Recipe by Poppy

A lovely creamy dessert.

Top Review by HeatherFeather

This was very good! After first consulting with the recipe poster, I determined that I should try using slightly rounded Tbsps when measuring out the rice - measuring this way, I ended up with about 1/2 cup raw rice. I felt the amount of rice was fine - the liquid reduced considerably while simmering. Mine did thicken up much more than that last reviewer's did - but it still was a loose pudding, even after chilling. The taste was very pleasant and reminded me of English custard with rice in it. Thanks for sharing!
