Easy Sorrel, Coconut and Rum Rice Pudding
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 9
  • 2 cups of cooked jasmine rice
  • 3 cups of milk. I used coconut milk (any milk combination works)
  • 2½ tbsps. of butter
  • ½ tsp of vanilla
  • A pinch of nutmeg
  • A pinch of salt
  • A pinch of cinnamon powder
  • ¼-1/3 cup of sugar according to taste (any sugar works)
  • ½-1 cup raisins
  • 2 tbsps. desiccated or grated coconut
  • 1cup rum or whisky(optional)
  • Zobo syrup for serving
  1. Soak the raisins in rum for about 30minutes.
  2. Combine all the ingredients in a sauce pan stir. Bring to a slight boil and reduce the heat to low. Cook for about 20 minutes while stirring as often as you can to prevent burning. Once the pudding is thickened and creamy, remove it from the heat and set aside to cool. (If the pudding is not thick and creamy enough, add some more milk and cook to your taste)
  3. Once cool, serve with some Zobo syrup and enjoy
