Honey Coconut Lime Jasmine Rice Pudding

Rice pudding is one of the most comforting foods out there.  Soft and sweet, served warm or cold, it’s a classic dessert that’s surprisingly easy to prepare.

I love jasmine rice for its floral fragrance, so I thought it would be perfect to use for a delicately flavored rice pudding.

This jasmine rice pudding gets its bouquet of scent from a unique combination of ingredients.  Honey provides its own aromatics, while lime juice brightens with a citrus twist.  Coconut milk adds a tropical touch, while the warm spices of cardamom and cinnamon bring an earthy tone.

All together, they make a lovely rice pudding.  I make my rice pudding the easy way, without eggs, so there’s no worry about curdling or getting too firm or dry.

Tips for Making Jasmine Rice Pudding

  • I usually use whole milk, because it reduces nicely and lends a satisfying mouth feel.
  • Coconut milk is sold in cans and is different from coconut water or coconut cream.  Check the label to make sure you have the right thing.  Leftover coconut milk makes a wonderful curry base!
  • Green cardamom comes in two forms: preground (expensive), and pods (affordable).  Buy the pods and grind the seeds yourself for the best flavor and best price.
  • Rice pudding can be served slightly warm, or chilled.  Either way, wait until the last second to garnish with honey.
  • The higher quality the honey, the better.  The honey flavor really shines in this recipe, so pick a good one.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups cooked jasmine rice such as Veetee Dine In Thai Jasmine Rice
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons coconut milk
  • Squeeze of fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons honey plus more to garnish
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Seeds of 1 green cardomom pod finely ground

Instructions

  1. Combine the rice, milk, coconut milk, lime juice, and honey in a pot. Stir together. Taste the mixture; it should be slightly sweet, but not too sweet, because you'll be garnishing with honey later.
  2. Bring to a gentle boil uncovered. Reduce the heat until the mixture just barely bubbles.
  3. Simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes, or until the mixture has thickened enough to sit on a fork without dripping liquid. Keep in mind that the pudding will thicken even more once it cools.
  4. Let cool slightly. Prepare portions, then garnish generously with more honey and serve immediately.
