Rizogalo, Greek rice pudding, is a creamy, delicious dessert that is not over sweet with just a hint of vanilla and cinnamon!
- 8 Cups Milk (you may use low fat milk, if you like, it does not affect the taste. I used 2%)
- 2 Cups Water
- 1 Cup Long Grain Rice (not instant)
- 1/2 Cup Butter
- 4 Eggs
- 3/4 Cup Sugar
- 1 Tbsp. Vanilla
- 2 Tbsp. Cinnamon
<p>In a 4 quart sauce pan, bring the water to a boil over medium high heat. Add rice. Stir and cook for 4 to 5 minutes until the water has evaporated.</p>
<p>Lower heat to low and stir in milk, butter and sugar. Cover and cook over low heat for 1 to 1-1/4 hours, stirring occasionally.</p>
<p>Whip eggs with a fork or whisk. Stir two to three tablespoons of the hot rice mixture into the eggs (so that the eggs do not curdle).</p>
<p>Pour the egg mixture slowly into the rice, stirring constantly. Add vanilla. Stir for 2 to 3 minutes and remove from heat</p>
<p>Pour into dessert dishes and sprinkle with cinnamon.
Refrigerate when cooled. This recipe makes 10 to 12 one cup servings.</p>
