For the TWD group hug this week, Isabelle of Les gourmandises d’Isa has picked,
Arborio Rice Pudding, White, Black (Or Both) on pages 412 and 413 from Dorie Greenspans Baking From My Home To Yours.
This recipe has you par boil the Arborio rice for 5 minutes. Then take the milk and sugar to a boil then add the parboiled rice and simmer for 55 minutes.
The first time I attempted this I thought I followed instructions. I remember looking at the milk bubbling away on the stove at 40 minutes thinking it hadn’t thickened up at all. Then I went to do the washing up and noticed the drained rice in the sink. Give me a 15 step super complicated recipe and I do well. Give me 6 ingredients and 3 steps and I will try and forget something.
Now to the critique I missed the extra starch that the parboil removed. I don’t like gluggy rice pudding but I do preferred a more full bodied texture. The arborio rice does maintain its texture and I like that. This is a lovely light rice pudding.
So now off to the TWD blogroll to see the other rice puddings floating in the blog-sphere.
