I'm a sucker for anything with almond extract in it. I also love rice, rice pudding, and coconut milk. So, that makes this recipe a winner in my book. I eat this rice without any toppings, but my sister sometimes tops it with crushed pineapple, or mango. This recipe is truly TDF.
Coconut Rice Pudding
1 can coconut milk
milk (enough to equal 4 cups of liquid when combined w/ coconut milk)
1 1/2 c cal-rose rice
1 c. sugar
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 tsp almond extract (or more if you want more almond flavoring)
toasted coconut for garnish (optional)
Combine all ingredients in a meduim pot. Bring all ingredients besides the almond extract to a boil. Turn down heat to low and let simmer for 40-45 minutes or until rice is done, stirring occasionally . (If you need more of a saucy texture, stir in some milk at the end to give it the right consistency.) Stir in almond extract, and serve warm garnished with toasted coconut.
