Rice pudding is one of those things that takes you back to your childhood, back to those good ol' sweet memories at your grandma's house. My grandma, my "mama" was and still is the best cook/baker around. It's from her I got my passion for cooking and baking. She used to make some very delicious and elaborant Hungarian dishes and several Italian ones too, but it was 3 very simple kid-friendly dishes "palacsinta" (crepes), "tejde dara" (semolina porrdige) and tejbe rizs (rice pudding) which was and still are my all-time favorites.
Rice pudding is one of those childhood treats that we as adults have tried to modernize and adulterate with so many fancy twists on this classic. Don't get me wrong I love recreating classics but something the original is the best!
Here's my Mama's chocolate rice pudding, so delicious guaranteed to become a favorite for you too! :D
