Tips to Make the Perfect Rice Pudding
First, ensure you soak the rice for at least 20 minutes before cooking. If you are having bad luck with runny rice pudding, it can be thickened by adding more cooked rice, boiling it down to reduce the liquid, or adding a thickener such as flour. Keep in mind that as it cools, it will thicken.
If your rice pudding is hard, make sure that you are cooking the rice properly before adding it to the pudding mixture. If it is overcooked, it will be hard and crunchy; if it is undercooked, it will be mushy.
