Rice Pudding with Caramel Topping

Rice Pudding with Caramel Topping

This delicious Rice Pudding with Caramel Topping recipe is a must try! Rice Puddings are very popular in greece as desserts and can be served warm or cold. We wanted to use the traditional recipe and add a new modern spin to it.


  • 6 tbsps short grain white rice
  • 1 lt full fat milk
  • 1/2 glass of water
  • 6 tbsps sugar
  • 1/2 glass water
  • 5 tbsps cornflour
  • 1 tbsp rose water

Ingredients for the Caramel Topping: 

  • 5 tbsps sugar
  • a bit of water


  1. In a large saucepan add the rice, water and let it simmer over medium heat.
  2. Keep an eye, we don’t want the rice do go dry.
  3. Once the rice is soft ( after 10 minutes) pour in the milk.
  4. Stir in the sugar and let it simmer in low heat without covering.
  5. It’s important to reduce the heat to medium- low and gently cook the rice pudding.
  6. Now add more water and just before it comes to a boil add the cornflour.
  7. Cook for a few more minutes until you have a thick, custard like texture.
  8. If your rice pudding isn’t thick add more cornflour in the mixture.
  9. Remove the saucepan from the heat and add the rosewater and stir well.
  10. Now for the caramel topping, in a small saucepan add the sugar over high heat.
  11. Keep stirring and stirring the sugar, when it starts melting sprinkle some water and once it takes a dark brown colour remove from the heat.
  12. Pour the rice pudding into small bowls and add the Caramel on top.
  13. Enjoy!
