Hi Guys, Father's day is on it's way. Let's make some special recipe to our father or help our kids to make some special recipe to their papa. Let's tickle and awake his taste buds with some tangy, sweet, creamy, rich recipe. 

Rice pudding is an traditional Andhra recipe and we can also find rice pudding in many cuisines worldwide with little variations. Rice, milk and sugar are main ingredients. There are different variations in pudding depending on the preparation. Rice is directly cooked in milk in some regions and in some cuisines raw rice is made into paste and cooked in milk and some spices like nutmeg, cinnamon are used. Cream can be used in place of milk and honey in place of sugar. To flavoring the pudding we can use some artificial flavors or we can add fruit pulps.
