Greek Rice Pudding (Rizogalo)

This dessert is my favorite, my mother used to make this for me all the time growing up and she still does sometimes. ย The reason why this is my favorite is because Milk is involved and not Chocolate. ย Truth be told, I am not really a chocolate fan, ๐Ÿ™‚ ย  The only chocolate I mean Chocolate bar I would eat per se is maybe a Snickers bar and thatโ€™s about it. ย I donโ€™t even drink Coke Cola, I prefer the 7 up and Sprite soft drinks once in a while, but much more the homemade Lemonade. ย So, you can see why I love this dessert, no chocolate involved. Sorry, chocolate loversโ€ฆ.

Rizogalo ย which is pronounced (Ri-zo-ga-lo) ๐Ÿ™‚ is a thick , creamy and healthy dessert, that can be eaten anytime of the day. ย It is made rather quickly, but just note that much stirring is involved to get that creamy base. The rice is the major factor, others choose to use long grain rice, but I prefer the shorter version it all depends on what kind of rice you like to eat. Simple dessert, with a great taste. ย I hope you enjoy it!! ๐Ÿ™‚


4 tablespoons of Rice

1 cup Water

4 cups Milk

1/2 cup Sugar

2 tablespoon Corn Flour

1 Vanilla stick or powder





Pour the water into a sauce pan and add the rice. ย Let boil for about 10 minutes.ย 


Once the rice has boiled drain, and add ย 3 1/2 cups of the Milk stir and simmer for 15 minutes but you need to keep stirring, so that the rice does not stick. ย Dissolve the Corn Flour into the 1/2 cup of Milk thatโ€™s left over and add into the sauce pan along with the Sugar. ย Stir and continue to boil for at least 10 minutes until thick. ย  ย 

Once the Rizogalo has thickened add the Vanilla, stir and then pour into your desserts bowls. ย Let it cool for 1 hour and top with Cinnamon. ย This dessert can eaten warm or cold :). ย
