Pudding Rice

Haven't a clue what galangal is, or need to know what to use if you can't buy creme fraiche locally? We're sure our knowledgeable members will be able to point you in the right direction...

Pudding Rice

I'm in the United States and I have several cook books with recipes that call for "pudding rice". In fact, I've seen one of my favorite Fall and Winter-time cook books slammed in an Amazon.com review simply because the reviewer didn't know what "pudding rice" was. So, I'm asking, because I don't want to make the assumption that it's medium- or short-grained: What kind of rice do I use as "pudding rice"?

Pud Rice

Hello, and welcome to the Forum, Puddings are generally made from Short Grain Rice, ( but you can use long grain or Basmati). I think the use of Short Grain is because it holds more starch (but I am prepared to be corrected) and makes the pudding creamier.

Hope this helps, perhaps you will let us know how you get on

Agree with Yummy - it is simply short, as opposed to long, grain rice.
Oh - welcome from me too !

As above it is short grain. In the US you might find it called arborio rice or Italian risotto rice.
