An excellent blank canvas, rice pudding can reflect and complement most flavors add to it, while provide a creamy, silky mouthfeel. Most rice-eating cultures have either a savory or sweet version of rice pudding: in Italy, it is called budino di riso; in Indonesia, it is bubur samsam or ketan hitam and in Mexico, it is arroz con leche.This recipe offers a double-punch of coconut flavor to compliment arguably“ one of the creamiest rice puddings around. The long cook time allows the rice€™s starch to gelatinize fully, improving the mouthfeel.
