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. Β The reason why this is my favorite is because Milk is involved and not Chocolate. Β Truth be told, I am not really a chocolate fan, πŸ™‚ Β  The only chocolate I mean Chocolate bar I would eat per se is maybe a Snickers bar and that’s about it. Β I don’t even drink Coke Cola, I prefer the 7 up and Sprite soft drinks once in a while, but much more the homemade Lemonade. Β So, you can see why I love this dessert, no chocolate involved. Sorry, chocolate lovers….

Rizogalo Β which is pronounced (Ri-zo-ga-lo) πŸ™‚ is a thick , creamy and healthy dessert, that can be eaten anytime of the day. Β 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. Β I hope you enjoy it!! πŸ™‚



  • 4 tablespoons of Rice
  • 1 cup Water
  • 4 cups Milk
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 2 tablespoon Corn Flour
  • 1 Vanilla stick or powder
  • Cinnamon


  1. Pour the water into a sauce pan and add the rice. Let boil for about 10 minutes.
  2. Once the rice has boiled drain, and add 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. Dissolve the Corn Flour into the 1/2 cup of Milk that’s left over and add into the sauce pan along with the Sugar. Stir and continue to boil for at least 10 minutes until thick.
  3. Once the Rizogalo has thickened add the Vanilla, stir and then pour into your desserts bowls. Let it cool for 1 hour and top with Cinnamon. This dessert can eaten warm or cold :).
