This is an extra-rich rice pudding made with short grain rice, a nod to my Okinawan heritage. The recipe calls for already-cooked short-grain rice (likely from a rice cooker) and is a great way to use leftover rice. Make it for breakfast, as a snack, or serve it for dessert! Add additional milk or cream to each bowl when serving, if you like.

I must admit that I was a little intimidated by this recipe but I followed it and loved the taste of the rice pudding. However I made some alterations. I LOVE cinnamon in my rice pudding so I added about 1/2 teaspoon when I added the milk sugar and salt. I was not disappointed. Since my sons and I prefer our rice pudding to be very creamy I added an additional 1/2 c. of whole milk and and additional 1/2 c. of heavy whipping cream. Wow is that decadent! I think that the recipe as written has great flavor I just like mine creamier. Thank you so much for taking the time to submit this recipe!!! Read More

Nice to use leftover rice and the Instant Pot but I feel that this recipe calls for too much rice. Next time I will use only 2 or 2.5 cups of rice instead. The way the recipe is written the texture leaves much to be desired. I added a sprinkle of nutmeg to each serving along with the cinnamon and it was great. Read More

I made this rice pudding and honestly it did not turn out the way I had hoped. It's ok but I added more vanilla, more sugar, raisins, more cinnamon, and extra cream so basically I doubled the ingredients for just 2 cups of cooked rice. I did not like the yellow colour the yolks gave to it. Sorry I am used to a creamy cinnamon flavoured rice pudding that can be eaten warm or cold. Read More
