You can eat your pudding warm or cold. I always find it interesting the way different people prefer their rice pudding.
I love to eat it warm. There is something extra comforting about it when the bowl warms your hand and everything is extra creamy.
But I know a lot of folks like to chill it before they eat it too. Maybe you should have one bowl fresh and warm and another cold and creamy.
If you do plan to eat it chilled, you may want to stir in a little bit of extra milk. The pudding does thicken up as it chills, so a little extra liquid will do it some good.
Using an Electric Pressure Cooker to Make Rice Pudding
Sometimes it is the fact that you have leftover rice that prompts you to make rice pudding. But it is so good, sometimes you just want to make it for the sake of it, so you don’t have cooked rice on hand.
That is where your pressure cooker comes in. Start with uncooked long grain rice and be ready to dig in in no time.
The rice cooks in water, milk and cocoa powder, so it is already creamy and chocolaty. The stir in sweetened condensed milk to instantly make it rich, sweet and ready to eat.
If you are a regular here, you know I always have cans of condensed milk in the pantry. It is a staple in our house.
You can also make your own homemade sweetened condensed milk if you want to keep it homemade. It is sure to be delicious either way!
If your rice pudding is thicker than you would like it, stir in an extra splash of milk. If it is too thin, just cook it a little bit longer.
Should you rinse the rice before making rice pudding?
Give the rice a quick rinse to make sure it is clean and remove a little of the excess starch. You don’t have to make the water run completely clear though, that starch will help to thicken up the pudding.
