Grandma’s Rice Pudding

My grandmother made this rice pudding for every holiday. I asked for the recipe many years ago which she gave me on a piece of notebook paper in her handwriting. Like her cookies, I’ve taken over the tradition of preparing this dish.


Grandma’s Rice Pudding Recipe

  • 1 cup cooked white rice
  • 4 cups of milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Cook the rice and drain and set aside. Scald the milk on low heat, add the rice and raisins. Set aside and let cool a bit. Beat the eggs in a separate dish and add the sugar, vanilla, salt and nutmeg. Add the egg mixture to the milk mixture and stir together. Pour into a greased baking casserole dish. Bake on 325 degrees 50 minutes to an hour. Chill in the refrigerator.

Curry Rice

Don’t you think curry flavor is wonderful? It’s delicious added to egg salad, chicken salad and rice. I like to add raisins to the rice for a sweet flavor.

Curried Rice

  • 2 cups cooked basmati rice
  • 1 zucchini diced
  • 1 small box mushrooms chopped
  • 1 bunch of green onions chopped
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 Tbsp garlic paste
  • 2 Tbsp curry powder
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • olive oil to saute mushrooms and zucchini

Saute zucchini and mushrooms until soft in a large skillet. Add the cooked rice, green onions, raisins, curry powder, garlic paste and soy sauce.
