Sütlaç - Turkish rice pudding


Sütlaç is a traditional Turkish rice pudding and is definitely one of the most popular desserts made in Turkish homes. Sütlaç can be made in several ways - cooked or baked in the oven, plus the flavours can vary too. You can go adventurous and add some chocolate! But I made a simple version and it was still very creamy and tasty!

What we need:

6 tbsp of short grain rice
5 glasses of water
1 l of milk
200 gr of sugar
1 vanilla stick
4 tbsp of wheat starch
4 egg yoks
nuts for serving

What we have to do:

1. Wash and drain rice. Then put in a cold water and boil until soft. Drain it.
2. In a pot mix egg yoks and milk, add vanilla, sugar and boiled rice. Put on the medium heat and bring it to boil.
3. Mix starch with 100 ml of water and slowly pour into milk with rice. Mix it all the time. When it starts bubbling and becomes creamy, remove from the heat.
4. It makes 8 servings. Divide into serving dishes and sprinkle with some nuts - walnut, hazelnut, or pistachio. Enjoy!
