Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 3 to 4 servings


  • 1/2 cup short grain white rice
  • 1 & 1/2 cups water (for cooking the rice)
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 2 cups milk


  • Rinse your rice under cold water and drain, repeating about 3 or 4 times, or until the water runs clear. In a medium saucepot, combine your washed and drained rice along with 1 and 1/2 cups of cold water.
  • Place the pot on a stove burner set to medium-high heat, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover the pot (leaving the lid slightly ajar) and simmer rice for about 20 minutes, or until the rice is fully cooked. The water should also be fully absorbed. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together sugar and cornstarch (this helps prevent lumps). Gradually add milk to the sugar and cornstarch mix, whisking well to incorporate. Pour this mixture over the cooked rice.
  • Place the pot onto a stove burner set to medium heat. Cook the rice, stirring constantly, until the milk starts to bubble. Boil for about 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until thickened to your liking.
  • Remove from the heat and transfer to serving dishes. Serve warm, or cover with plastic wrap (touching the surface of the pudding to prevent skin!) and refrigerate until ready to serve.
