How to make it

  • Wash rice well, let it soak in warm water for 1 hour.
  • Place rice in a large pot, add one cup water, and let it boil
  • after 10 minutes add milk
  • and keep stirring, this is the hectic part of this recipe, it takes 45 minutes.
  • Stir in sugar so it won't burn at the bottom of the pot leave it for 5 more minutes keep stirring.
  • Crush mastic with 1 Tbs of sugar, add it to the pot,
  • stir rose water in.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Spoon in individual bowls, sprinkle ground pistachios.
  • Serve warm or cold.
  • Note: The authentic recipe calls for both rose water and mastic, substituting rose water with vanilla is an option. You may stir in raisins and shredded coconut.
  • Presentation: Served in individual bowls, warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, toasted nuts. I liked mine cold with a sprinkle of cinammon.

    Tried the rice pudding yesterday. Loved it! Did not know what mastic was but just kept cooking and it thickened.
