    It may not turn out the same, but you can try. Start by adding the rice to a pan over medium heat and skip to step 3, for the milk, add 1 and 1/2 cups and slowly add more if needed. Good luck and let us know how it turns out.

    Just made this, and I am in heaven. A taste of my childhood! I substituted soya milk for the whole milk and 1/2 cup of honey for the white sugar. It turned out fantastic. Than you Eddie for posting so many wonderful and authentic recipes.

    You can but it won't probably have the same great result.

    I would say no! The lemon is such a signature part of this dish and comes through so nicely. Lime will give you a different flavor profile.

    To Nick: I used orange rind and juice, no cinnamon but did use a vanilla bean. Have to say, it was lovely.

    What is arborio rice? Someone told me to use river rice.

    Arborio rice is high in amylopectin, a starch present in rice. Because it undergoes less milling than ordinary long-grain rice, arborio retains more of its natural starch content and you get a creamier result.

    I found that there is a Tastic arborio risotto rice... And Woolworths sells a risotto rice that is for rice pudding. It actually gives a stickier feeling therefore the creamier texture as well as taste.

    Do you wash rice

    In some cases people do, and for some recipes it's a good idea, but not for this one Maria, I would not wash it for rice pudding because it will end up creamier.

    Yes Teresa, you simmer the rice in water for 20 minutes and then another 20 minutes once you add the milk.

    I like this recipe but mine was very liquidy with the 4 cups of liquid if I had followed the time directions. I had to add another almost 40 minutes of coming time to make sure the rice was fully cooked and not too liquidy. Also, I think one cup of sugar is good if you like it extremely sweet, otherwise maybe 1/2 cup then add more if needed. I will definitely make this again and try to tweak it a bit.
