Simple Rice Pudding Recipe

Note: They use long grain Basmati rice at Bombay Grill, and I love the way it crumbles into an uneven texture, but short grain rice will also work. If you have a few vanilla beans, I'd recommend throwing them in with the sugar and removing them when rice is finished.

  • Yield:4
  • Active time: 5 minutes
  • Total time:1 hour


  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup rice
  • 1 cup sugar


  1. 1.

    Add milk to medium heavy-bottomed saucepan. Heat over medium heat until simmering, about 5 minuts. Add sugar and stir until dissolved. Add rice and adjust heat to maintain a low simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally until rice is broken, soft, and mixture has thickened to porridge-like consistency, at least 30 minutes or longer for softer texture.
