There’s something really comforting about eating desserts out of a cup, mug, glass or small bowl. Especially when they’re creamy, soft, and not too overpowering in flavour, this is what this rose, and pistachio rice pudding offers. With the added pistachio crunch on top, you can enjoy it for breakfast, dessert or even a snack.
The best part is that you can make a batch and keep it in the fridge. You can pack it for an afternoon snack or treat for work, school or road trip. I can’t believe it has taken me so long to start experimenting with rice puddings!
I’ll try a few other flavours, like walnut, rum and raising or chocolate and orange. Or something fresh like raspberry and coconut. Oh, the options are endless! Do you have any suggestions of what flavour combinations you’d like to see? Or a one that you have made in the past that you love?
I did grow up eating rice puddings. They’re called Sutlijaš in Serbian, and my dad made them for us for breakfast quite often for my siblings and me. I remember it being mainly dried fruit like sultanas, nuts like walnuts or almonds and seeds like sunflower or sesame seeds. He made the rice pudding with milk and sugar. And of course lots of cinnamon.
I wanted to try something different, and I love the idea of using rose in dessert. The main one that comes to mind is Turkish delight. Something that I also grew up eating. My dad would have a box of if most of the time in the house.
Hope you enjoy this creamy and light rice pudding!
