Rice pudding with dried fruits

rice pudding with dried fruits 2

This dessert is a very nice treat any time, satisfies the sweet tooth and has health elements at the same time.

Serves 6


½ cup short grain rice

6 cups water (1500 ml)

400 g sweetened condensed milk

2 tablespoons blossom water

About a handful of dried fruits of your liking (put them in water when you begin making the pudding so they become a little more soft)

Dried pistachios, almonds, pecans/walnuts, pine nuts, cashews for garnish ( put them in cold water for an hour or two)

1) Put the rice and water in a pot, bring to boil and simmer on low heat with occasional stirring until rice is well cooked. Don’t worry if the water seems too much for the rice.

2) Add the milk to the rice mixture. Bring to boil and simmer over low heat with stirring from time to time until the mixture is thick and creamy. The mixture will thicken more when it cools.

3) Add what you wish and the blossom water, and stir. Remove from heat and pour the mixture in cups or a bowl.

4) Allow the rice pudding to cool a bit and then place in fridge to cool.

  1. This is perfect for Ramadan! Especially with this year’s heat, it would be nice to cool down with a bowl of this. We have something very similar to this in Pakistani cuisine and it is called Kheer 🙂

  2. It is indeed! Oh I looked up kheer, sounds great, I like the add of spice in there, well try it insha’Allah.

    Thank you for the comment and hope Ramadan is going well for you 🙂
