Arborio rice is great for Stephanie Prida's pudding, because the plump grains stay perfectly firm and chewy.
More Easy Desserts
1 quart whole milk
1 cup arborio rice (about 8 ounces)
1/2 cup sugar
One 14-ounce can unsweetened coconut milk
1/2 cup coarsely shredded unsweetened coconut
How to Make It
In a large saucepan, combine the milk, rice and sugar with 2 cups of water and bring to a boil. Simmer over moderate heat, stirring frequently, until the rice is tender and suspended in a thick, creamy sauce, about 30 minutes. Stir in the coconut milk and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the rice is very tender and the liquid is thickened, about 10 minutes. Let cool slightly.
In a medium saucepan, toast the coconut over moderate heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant and golden, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate to cool.
Spoon the rice pudding into bowls, garnish with the toasted coconut and serve.

Review Body: Not a review but a question. The recipe calls for "water." Where is the "water" in the ingredients?

Review Body: I love this recipe and have made it several time. As suggested I did need to cook it a little longer than the directions. I also add two egg yolks and beat them into the coconut milk before adding the coconut milk to the rice. The egg yolks mae it creamy almost like custard. Today I added a teaspoon of vanilla and a can of mandarin oranges (drained and added the juice in the water to make 2 cups). I only had sweetened coconut and it worked great. I stir my coconut in at the end and let cool. My family thinks the rice tastes even better the next day.

Review Body: It's delicious. I followed the recipe exactly (except for whole milk and I had 1%-forgot). I cooked it about 10 minutes longer on the first instructions, added the coconut milk and cooked an extra 5 or so. It didn't seem to thicken so I called a chef friend of mine who said to add an egg when it was warm. I did add the egg and it was perfect. Thank you. I'll make this again sometime.

Review Body: Noting would ever beat my mum's baked rice pudding .... Rice, milk, sugar with knobs of butter on top. Bunged into the oven and baked to perfection with a golden brown crust/skin on top. We'd all fight for a piece of the skin .... delish!
