rice pudding is a typical desert in Egypt, my country, however none of the recipes i found on this wonderful site say how to do it the oriental way which is so easy. all u have to do is rince 1/4 of a cup of rice in cold water , keep rincing changing the water until clear. on the stove, combine rice with 4 cups of milk, and the amount of sugar that you judge appropriate, i usually use 1/4 of a cup, and a tsp of vanilla extact. simmer on low heat until the rice is coocked, then ad 1tbsp of cornflour or any other thickning agent used in the us, i dont know what is usually used,the cornflour should be previously dilueted in 5 tbs of milk so as to avoid clumping. once the cornflour is added, bring to a boil stirring until the mixture thickens and ad 2 tbs of rose water or orange blossom water, reduce quantity to a few drops if using rose essence. laddle into individual serving bowl. when cool, sprinkle with ground cinamon, grated coconut, raisins , ground almonds.... this is a typical egyptian rice pudding usually eaten during celebrations.
