    Sydney Mike's Note:

    The Greek name for this recipe is pronounced 'ree-ZOH-ghah-loh" & it makes for a very sweet, creamy kind of pudding, with emphasis on the cream!

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      In a saucepan, combine rice & water. Bring to boil, then turn heat down to low & cook 10 minutes, stirring frequently with wooden spoon.
    2. 2
      Warm milk & stir into rice along with half the sugar [NOTE: If your preference is for a less-sweet pudding, consider reducing the 3/4 cup to 2/3 cup, then use HALF OF THAT at this time]. Cover & continue to cook over very low heat for 20 minutes or until most of the liquid has been absorbed, stirring occasionally.
    3. 3
      Dissolve cornstarch in as little cold water as possible (about 2 tablespoons, but make sure it is FULLY dissolved) & add to rice.
    4. 4
      Continue to stir briskly, simmering for a full 5 minutes, then remove from heat, & set aside, covered, for 10 minutes.
    5. 5
      Whisk egg yolks with the last half of the sugar, then add to rice mixture, stirring with wooden spoon until very well blended (to thicken & to prevent yolks from cooking separately).
    6. 6
      Set aside to cool in the saucepan or in individual serving dishes.
    7. 7
      Serve at room temperature, sprinkled with cinnamon.

      This tastes exactly like a rice pudding I used to purchase in the supermarket which has since been discontinued, lovely flavour and even the kids loved it. Thanks for posting!

      Fantastic! I didn't have any short-grain rice on hand, so I used kalijira rice (a miniature long-grain rice) that has an beautiful perfume and delicate flavor. I bought whole milk specifically for this recipe, but it was sour when I opened the carton. So I used the fat-free milk had on hand, and the recipe turned out perfectly. The low setting on my gas range must be really low because Step 2 took about 30-35 minutes for me. BUT it was worth the wait! I like rice pudding warm or cold, which is good because I dove right in and had a small bowl just minutes after the pudding was done. Thanks so much, this one's a treasure.
