  • In a pot, add the rice, water, milk and heavy cream.
  • In a small food processor, beat the granulated sugar and 6 cardamom seeds. Beat for 1 minute, until the seeds are finely ground.
  • If you don't have cardamom, you can add a vanilla pod and its seeds directly to the pot.
  • Add the aromatic mixture to the pot.
  • Stir and add the cinnamon sticks.
  • Place the pot over medium heat and bring to a boil.
  • Lower heat and simmer for 20-25 minutes stirring continuously. It is important to stir continuously so that the rice doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pot.  
  • As soon as it comes to a boil, lower heat to medium-low.
  • The longer you stir the more the mixture will thicken.
  • As soon as the rice begins to thicken, remove from heat, remove lid and allow it to rest for 5 minutes.
  • You can serve it warm or cold. If you like it cold, refrigerate to chill.
  • To serve your rice pudding in the traditional Greek way, sprinkle with a generous amount of ground cinnamon.


You can try it with milk or low fat cream!
