  • 500 g rice (short grained white)

Rice pudding

  • Turn the oven to 150°C.
    Alternatively it can be cooked in the pot but it takes less effort to use the oven and minimises the chances of the rice pudding burning/sticking to the bottom of the pot.
  • Rinse your rice before adding them to a pot with with the water. Cook and stir until the water is soaked by the rice (about 5 min).
  • Add the oat and coconut milk to the pot. Stir until it boils, making sure it doesn't burn/stick to the bottom of the pot.
  • Put a lid on the pot and set in the oven for about 45 min. You might want to have a tray under it in case it spills over.
  • Take the pudding out of the oven, give it a stir and add the salt. If the texture isn't creamy enough you can add some oat cream.
    Serve in a bowl.


  • Mix the sugar and cinnamon powder.
  • Add about a teaspoon of butter in the middle of the porridge, letting it melt and sprinkle some cinnamon sugar on top of the pudding.
