Directions

  1. Bring water to a boil in medium saucepan.
  2. Add rice and cover, simmering for 20 minutes.
  3. Add milk, sugar and lemon rind, stirring constantly until thickened to oatmeal consistency, about 15-20 minutes.
  4. It will also thicken some while cooling.
  5. Add 2 egg yolks slowly while mixing (optional).
  6. Pour into one large serving plate and remove lemon rind.
  7. Spread flat and allow to cool on wire rack.
  8. You can be decorative with cinnamon by pinching a bit between your fingers and place while your hand is no more than an inch away from the rice (criss cross patterns are traditional), or you can just dust the entire top with the cinnamon.
  9. Serve at room temp, but refrigerate uneaten portion.

Can I use cooked rice to start. I have a lot of left over rice and thought a pudding would be nice

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.
