1 cup (200 g)uncooked short-grain white rice, washed, soaked 4 hours*
¼ cup (60 mL)water
3 cups (720 mL)unsweetened oat milk
¼ cup (50 g)granulated sugar
2 Tbsp (30 mL)rose water**
¼ tspground cardamom
- To a saucepan on medium-high heat, add the drained rice and water. Let the rice soak up all the water while stirring occasionally, this will take about 5 minutes.
- Add the oat milk, bring the milk to a very light simmer and cook uncovered for 20 - 25 minutes, stirring every few minutes.
- When the rice is cooked, add the sugar and cook it for 2 more minutes. Make sure to keep an eye on it, as the sugar can burn quickly.
- Stir in the rosewater* and cardamom, and remove the pan from the heat to allow it to cool off completely.
- Garnish with cinnamon***, rose petals, pistachios, and enjoy!
- * Traditionally the rice is soaked, but this is not totally necessary. If the rice is not soaked, simply add more milk. For every 1 cup of rice, 4 cups of milk should do the trick.
- ** Rosewater is a common ingredient in some Middle Eastern cuisines and gives the recipe a floral taste. You might find it most easily in Persian, Moroccan, or Indian supermarkets. We even found ours at our local Asian supermarket. If it's your first time using rose water, you may want to consider adding less to start, and you can always add more later, as the floral taste might be overpowering if you're not accustomed to it.
- *** Cinnamon is traditionally only added to the top of the pudding decoratively, but as a kid, I preferred it when my mum mixed it into my rice while it was cooking. You're welcome to do the same if you're also a cinnamon lover!
- The shir beranj can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
