Notes from Rouba

  • The secret to a great caraway pudding is medium heat and constant stirring.
  • When pouring into individual glasses, leave enough room for all those crunchy toppings.
  • Once the pudding has been garnished with the crunchy topping, serve immediately. If you have to refrigerate it, don’t cover it as the nuts will soften.
  • What are caraway and its benefits 


Step 1.

In separate bowls, soak slivered almonds and pine nuts and set aside.

Step 2.

On medium heat, add ground rice, cinnamon, caraway, and sugar to the water and whisk until sugar dissolves and the pudding slightly thickens.

Step 3.

Pour evenly into individual glasses and fill about ⅓ of each glass only. Refrigerate for 3-4 hours.

Step 4.

To serve, garnish in order of toppings because that's how you get the most crunch: desiccated coconut, slivered almonds, pine nuts, walnuts, pistachio, coconut flakes, and dried apricots. Alternatively, pour the caraway pudding into one large serving bowl and follow the same process as above.
