Tangerine Chocolate Rice Pudding

Tangerine Chocolate Rice Pudding

In my opinion, the flavors of chocolate and orange were meant to be together. 
I always make rice pudding using leftover rice.  This is even great to use if you have leftover rice from Chinese takeout! (plain rice only of course).

Printable Recipe
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon corn starch
1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
3 egg yolks (lightly whisked)
3 1/2 cups milk
3 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon tangerine rind (you may use orange rind)
1 to 1 1/2 cups rice (leftover - already steamed or cooked)
1/2 teaspoon salt

In a medium sized saucepan - combine the sugar, cocoa & cornstarch.  Slowly stir in the milk making sure that both the sugar & cornstarch are dissolved.  Add in the egg yolks and stir until combined.  Add the tangerine rind.  Now, bring to a boil on medium heat stirring all the time.  Once it has boiled you will notice that it has become thick - that's good - that's what you want (but continue to stir.  You might need to lower the heat a little - you don't want it to burn).  Boil for 1 minute while stirring all the time.  Remove from the heat and add the butter & salt - stir until the butter has totally melted.  Finally, add the leftover rice (If the rice has clumped together then break up the rice with a fork before adding) and stir until mixed throughout.

  4. This would be another good option for my mom's new reduced gluten diet. :-) I'm wondering if I could use mint instead of orange/tangerine, since some of our family isn't keen on citrus peels with chocolate. :-)

    I think you meant to put "1/2 teaspoon salt".

    1. Oh my goodness - I sure did mean 1/2 teaspoon - thank you so much for noticing & for letting me know (I will correct that next)
      I think that mint would be a delicious substitute for orange - good luck & let me know how it turns out- Have a great weekend!
