I think of Rice Pudding as comfort food.
Comfort food should be simple to make, using the most basic of ingredients
that you already have in the house. And it definitely has to taste good. Interestingly enough, although sweetened

milk seems to be the basis for a lot of rice pudding recipes, country and culture

does influence what type of rice and milk to use and also what spices (nutmeg, mace, and cinnamon) and flavorings (such

as rose water, vanilla, orange and lemon peel) are added to the pudding. 

The question of which rice to use is debatable as
there are many choices; long or short grain white rice, basmati, or even
jasmine. My personal preference is to use either a long or short grain
white rice. The difference being that long grain rice will produce a
pudding that is slightly drier and chewier than one made with a short
grain rice. You use a very small amount
of rice to milk in this pudding. And that is because the
rice expands and the milk reduces during cooking so don’t be tempted to
use extra rice. The pudding should be cooked until the rice is al dente,
that is, just tender, which takes about
20 to 25 minutes. Then remove from heat and stir in the sugar,
cinnamon, and raisins (if using). Return to heat and simmer just until the
pudding starts to thicken. The final step is to stir in the vanilla
extract.

Lastly,

there is always the question of whether there should or should not be a film
(skin) on

top of the pudding. This is a personal choice. If you don’t like the film then press plastic wrap directly on the surface of the pudding right after it

is cooked. Leaving the rice pudding uncovered until it has

cooled will produce the skin (film). Rice Pudding is delicious hot, lukewarm, or even cold.
