Orange & Cardamom Rice Pudding

الوصفة بالعربي

Add a fragrant twist to this all time classic…


  • 1/2 cup rice (Egyptian rice) - أرز
  • 4 cup water - ماء
  • 1 liter milk - لبن
  • 6 tablespoon sugar (or to taste) - سكر
  • 3 tablespoon corn flour - نشا
  • 2 large orange (use zest only) - برتقالة
  • 4 pod cardamom - حبهان

Step by step

  1. Soak the rice in water for 15 minutes.
  2. Discard the water and add 4 cups of room temperature water to the rice and cook on medium heat. When it boils lower the heat and leave to simmer until the rice is cooked and the water is absorbed.
  3. Dissolve the corn flour in 1/4 cup milk and set aside.
  4. Heat the remaining milk with the orange zest, cardamom pods (after you crack them open), and add the sugar. Stir the mix and make sure the sugar is dissolved. As the milk simmers it will be infused with the lovely orange cardamom aroma.
  5. When the rice is cooked, use a sieve to strain the aromatic milk into the rice. Add the milk with the dissolved corn flour and keep stirring on a medium heat until you achieve the required consistency. (If you don't stir, the rice will stick to the bottom of the pot and burn.)
  6. Pour the pudding in your favourite bowls, leave to cool, then garnish with extra orange zest and pop in the fridge.
