Brown rice Apple Pudding

Pear Pudding1


This pudding made with brown rice using low fat milk as a desert healthier for the whole family. Natural sweetener honey is used. To make it more delightful have used home made fresh Pear Jam.

Enjoy this creamy, thick, slightly sweet, and hearty rice pudding.

Cooking time: 25-30 minutes

For Rice Pudding:

  • Wash and soak brown rice for 4-5 hours.

  • In a small cup add a tablespoon of warm milk and soak the saffron strands.
  • Bring milk to boil and simmer, add the ground mixture and stir every 3 minutes once on low flame. Make sure they don’t form lumps. Let it cook for 10-12 minutes on a low flame until the ground rice is cooked

  • For more creamy texture you can use full fat milk/condensed milk which may add few calories.
  • Sweetness can per personalized as per the taste
  • Here I used maple syrup as a sweetener- it can be substituted with honey/brown sugar/any sweetener of choice.
  • If using honey –make sure not to heat it once added to the dish.
