Rice Pudding

{dad’s love for rice pudding}
If I had to ask my father what pudding he would like me to make for him he always had the same reply – rice pudding with caramel sauce … *i miss him so much* … This was his ultimate favourite dessert dish. I can still see him sitting there with this look of absolute content as he devoured the pudding spoon by careful spoon … the look of joy on his face as he used to scoop another helping will always remain a touching and much cherished memory for me. Then later in the afternoon he would sneak to the kitchen and with his big hands take the cold bowl of rice pudding, drown the pudding in golden syrup and finish it off. This was his way. Coen’s way.

{yesterday’s rice pudding + today’s rice pudding}
The difference between my rice pudding today and the pudding I used to make for my dad is the addition of the lemon essence + pistachio nuts. These two ingredients just add a tad more sophistication and that delicate sort of flavour. It’s a real treat for fathers – and the whole family.

PS: You can use any type of rice for this pudding.
