Ruzz M3ammar: A Quick Baked Pudding
A quick, rich Egyptian dessert that Taita likes to make every once in a while when we want something sweet but are lazy:
Soak about 2 cups of rice in water for five minutes. Drain the water off.
Boil some water in a large pot. Put the soaked rice into the boiling water. Boil until the rice is just cooked, then add about 1 liter of milk to the pot. Add a cup of thick cream if you have some on hand, to make it even richer.
Add sugar and vanilla to taste.
Add a handful of coconut to the mixture.
You could add a handful of raisins too, if you like them (I don’t like raisins, personally, hence the green highlight color). Stir constantly until it thickens.
Pour the thickened mixture into a baking dish, and put it under your broiler until the top of the pudding turns a rich golden color.
Let it cool, then cut it and serve! It can be eaten at room temperature, or chilled.
Couldn’t be simpler :)
