Hey, all! I hope you and your loved ones are happy, healthy & safe, & that enjoying your day -or at least some small part of it. :)
There are 2 parts to my review. The star rating you see is based on how easy the directions are follow, the simplicity of ingredients called for, & the versatility of this recipe (based on my experience making this & my level of culinary “expertise”).
The rest of it is based on the substitutions & adjustments I had to make, which were done because I mostly cook for 1 person, I have food allergies, & my budget is very small -especially for food. Luckily, most of these things line up with preferences of mine & the pricing, availability, & variety of food in where I live.
The adjustment I made was that I halved the recipe (using half the amount for each ingredient, even the substitutions).
I used all of the same ingredients, except for the following substitutions, omission, & addition:
-Instead of whole milk, I used canned unsweetened full-fat coconut milk
(plain unsweetened soy milk can be used instead as well)
-I didn’t have aborio rice, so I used white sushi rice instead
(Jasmine & plain white rice can be used instead, though you may have to add more or less water than what this recipe calls for).
-I skipped the shredded coconut completely because I didn’t want it.
-I added a pinch of ground cardamom to my serving of pudding, stirring it in well before eating.
**If you can buy it & want to try something new, I recommend adding both cardamom & rose water to the entire batch, making sure to mix them in well.
1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon for half batch
1/4 to 1/2 for full batch
1/4 teaspoon for half recipe
1/2 teaspoon for full recipe
With how I made this recipe, it turned out delicious! When I let it cool, I cover it and let it set so that it would thicken a bit more. I prefer my pudding cold. :)Read More
Why are you running recipes that are impossible to make during this time? Who has a quart of milk...it is so hard to find right now, how about some recipes that are for people without access to pomegranate and marscapone or even eggs?Read More
MINOUCHKA ***** My Family, Friends and Moi loved this recipe and have made it several time. Like others I, too added egg yolks to make it creamy. Also, dress it up with whatever garnishes on hand --- berries, raisins soaked in brandy or rum, or garnish with chocolate shavings, or caramelized walnut -- looks and tastes just wonderful and YUMMY!Read More
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.Read More
I followed the instructions but my rice won't get tenderRead More
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!Read More
Not a review but a question. The recipe calls for "water." Where is the "water" in the ingredients?Read More
