Rice Pudding is popular all around the world. Made with rice and milk. Simple, flavorful, cooked on the stove or baked inside the oven. Caramel on the top like the Turkish version or caramel into the bottom (my favorite version, especially when you turn over the mold and see the caramel sliding down the sides). I know I’m a “gourmande”.
This version is very simple to make, and tasty, a family favorite!
