Creamy Rice Pudding


6 c whole milk 
1 c calrose rice 
1/2 c sugar 
2 Tbsp butter or margarine 
1/4 tsp salt 
2 tsp vanilla extract 
1/4 tsp nutmeg 
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon 


Add milk,rice, sugar, butter and salt into a large 5qt skillet. 

Over medium heat bring to a soft boil, continuously stir in a circular motion using a wire whisk, or wooden spoon. 

After approx ten minutes, you can reduce the heat to a low medium and continue to stir. 

Add nutmeg and cinnamon and continue to stir. 
Milk should be reduced by 50% taste rice it should be mid cooked. If too much milk has evaporated add a cup of warm milk. 

(I usually keep a small sauce pan with an additional cup of milk warm) 
After ten to fifteen minutes rice should be fully cooked and texture creamy. 

Remove from heat and add vanilla. 

You can serve warm or transfer to a bowl and chill. 

Top with raisins, or sprinkle cinnamon optional. 

If served warm you could add rum raisins before serving. 

1/2 c golden raisins 
2Tbsp dark rum 

Mix in bowl then heat in the microwave for a minute. Let stand for 30 minutes before serving on top of warmed rice pudding. 

Can be served warm or chiiled.


About Dish With Clarissa

Clarissa Ellis grew up learning to cook with her mom. In a time where traditional home-cooked food was going out of style, Clarissa learned to love and make those simple 'comfort foods' and family favorites. As she grew - and her mom got busier with long work hours, Clarissa supported her mom by taking over most of the cooking duties around the home. By the time Clarissa started high school - she had absorbed her mother's approach to traditional, homestyle Italian dishes; and thanks to So Cal's great weather year round... a love of cooking on the grill. Fast forward 30 years and Clarissa has never stopped cooking. She continued to explore food, learning more from So Cal's amazing cultural variety, trying things out on her family and her friends... and always learning. Never content to merely cook a good meal, Clarissa developed the habit of talking sharing her ideas with family, friends and coworkers. After a lifetime of learning and experimenting, Clarissa's love affair with traditional Italian cooking, and 'comfort foods' has grown into a robust, creative and cross-cultural approach to cooking that still manages to remain 'accessible' to the rest of us. Now Clarissa brings her experience and her approach online through her blog - giving all of us a chance give ourselves, our friends and our family the benefits of a lifetime of passion and joy in cooking simply great meals.
