Great point!! What type of rice do you recommend? And what type of rice do Greeks use?Every country seems to put its own touches on one of the World’s favorite comfort foods….rice pudding. The major differences are: the type of rice used (or available), the method of cooking (stove top or baked), the binding ingredient (milk, eggs, cornstarch etc.) and perhaps most important, the seasonings and accompaniments used. For example I’ve made a Lebanese rice pudding with rose water and almonds. An Indian pudding might contain cardamom and raisins; an Italian pudding could even contain coffee and chocolate! While most rice pudding recipes are very similar to the Greek in their use of cinnamon, what surprised me most about the Greek version was that it was often served in the villages warm for breakfast….like waiting for the fresh donuts!!
