History and Variations of Rice Pudding

Originating in the late 1300s, rice pudding was mainly found in royal kitchens only as rice was an expensive import back then. The original rice puddings weren’t so sweet and were more of a risotto consistency made with ingredients like saffron, almond milk, and broth. It wasn’t until the 1500s that the dessert evolved to include sweeteners like sugar and honey.

Over the years, many variations of rice pudding have been popularized all over the world. The dessert is especially common in Asia where rice is a staple. There, it can be found in sweet or savory forms and combined with ingredients like chocolate, banana, mango, saffron, nuts, and more. It is also a popular dish in the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Nordic countries, and the Middle East.
