The Best Rice for Rice Pudding
This recipe calls for short-grain white rice, but let’s say you don’t have that on hand. In general, the shorter the grain, the higher the starch content…and it’s starch that helps thicken this pudding and make it so creamy. You can use brown rice, but the pudding won’t be as creamy, it will take longer to cook, and you will likely need to add more liquid.
Here’s a list of rice varieties we recommend in this pudding.
