Sweet ground rice pudding



5 cups 2% milk (use skim milk for a low-fat version)
1/3 cup plus one teaspoon white sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 tbsp cornstarch
2 tbsp ground rice, uncooked (you can grind some in your blender)
1 tsp almond extract
cup ground almonds
Ground almonds or peanuts to garnish (optional)


  1. Blanching the almonds: Soak the almonds in a small bowl with just enough hot water to cover for 30 seconds. Strain and set aside.
  2. Preparing the pudding: Mix the milk, sugar, and salt together in a medium pot.Set burner on medium-low and bring to a gentle boil. Stir occasionally to prevent burning.
  3. Making the thickening agent: Mix the cornstarch and rice with 4 tbsp of warm water. The mixture should be smooth and without clamps.
  4. Whisk the starch mixture into the pot and continue mixing until the mixture thickens.
  5. Lower the heat and cook for an additional 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  6. Add the almonds and cook for an additional 15 minutes.
  7. Finishing up: Remove from the heat and add the almond extract. Pure into a bowl, cover and chill for an hour or so before serving. Garnish with ground almonds or peanuts before serving, if desired.
