Riz Condé



This is one of those desserts I used to have for sunday coffee, when I first cvame to belgium.
My FIL can never understand, back at home in Kerala we used to have rice for lunch and dinner and then when i mentioned that we also have breakfast items with rice , well as you all can imagine the looks of shock in his face.

My MIL makes rice once a week and every time when she makes rice, he complains oh it is rice for lunch and to that she replies to him, well you always complain about not liking rice, but there is nothing left in your plate when the lunch is finished. And more over you even take second helpings.
Ofcourse he replies to her ofcourse i take second helping otherwise it will go to waist :-)

So he uesd to buy these rice dessert from the bakers, saying i would love them as i had always rice back at home.
Have to admit i love this dessert and have been looking for a good recipe and it is only lately i found out this wonderful recipe.
Ofcourse as it is a sweet dessert, my FIL loves it, he don't mind that it is made from rice :-)

I would say it is a bit like our Kheer/payasom with a bit of difference.




Ingridients.

1 liter milk
I vanilla beans
150 gm rice , i used dessert rice, you can also nuse italian arborio rice.
150 gm sugar
25 gm butter
200 ml full cream
Pinch of salt
Apricot jam for serving.

Wash the rice and strain them.
Boil the milk with the split vanilla beans .
Add the rice, salt and butter. Bring it back to boil, remove the vanilla beans, scrape out the seed and put it back into the mixture.
Cook it for almost 35 minutes or till the rice is cooked stirring it once a while .
When the rice is cooked add the sugart and stir till it is mixed.
Take the pan from the fire , pour the rice mixture into a glass bowl .
You can cool the rice a bit adding water to a basin and keeping the glass bowl in it.
Add the cream which is lightly thickened.
Mix well.

Pour them to individual glasses and keep in the fridge for few hours.

Serve the rice condé with apricot jam. Normally it is served with this jam, but i think you can use any kind of jam according to your liking.
Heat he jam in the MW so it is easy to spoon on to the top of the rice
Sending this to Sirvalli's Rice mela and Srilekha's November event Sweets

Although I've never had it before I can say for a fact that is so good.

Pam said...

Mmmm good. This looks really tasty - I could have it for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

raaji said...

Looks like u made them in bulk....then why dont u pass on to us....????

Cham said...

I remember having this one in France. They even serve with fruits of ur choice! Very creamy ,thank you to remind me :)

sra said...

So that's jam on top?

LOL at your FIL's reaction to rice breakfasts. I think pongal is the only breakfast I know of with rice in rice form, and I find it too heavy for breakfast!

TBC said...

Yes, u are right... it IS like a payasam... a payasam with vanilla and apricot jam. :D

TBC said...

Yes, u are right... it IS like a payasam... a payasam with vanilla and apricot jam. :D

Happy cook said...

n33ma, do try to make them, then i am sure you will love them :-)

Pam for breakfast, well i would love them too except there is never seems to be any left overs ;-)

Raaji they are reaally small glasses so the portions are very little in each glasses and i took them to my inlaws place for cofee so we all could have it there.

Cham actually i think it is originally a french dessert, but then here in Belgium it is also famous, yeah you are correct here to they serve them with fruits too.

Sra it is indeed, apricot jam. You have dosa, puttu etc for breakfast, well when itell my FIL that the breakfast is made from rice as main ingridient but in dosa or puttu or appoms and then he is like you South indians do love your rice :-)

Happycook, thanks for stopping by.

I love this dessert. It sounds like a super duper fancy rice pudding, and I LOVE rice pudding. Actually I just love rice. If I had nothing else to eat by rice, I'd be very satisfied. Call me crazy, but it's true.

Thanks for the great recipe.

Mishmash ! said...

Roopa said...

So the texture is like Panna cotta? because of gelatine? I enjoyed reading through the introduction:) The color is beautiful:) I cant wait to try it:) PS: Can i use gelatin powder instead of leaves?

Bombay-Bruxelles said...

I make riz condé with rice flour or I mix the cooked mixture for a smoother texture...

Aparna said...

I have never heard of this till now. Just looking at the picture, its hard to believe that its rice. looks very exotic.
I'm not sure how my family that is used to traditional payasam would take payasam with apricot jam. :)

Yummy! I like rice puddings. I am also rather enamoured of your oval shaped moulds.

Susan from Food Blogga said...

Love the dialogue with your MIL and FIL. We have a few of those men in our family too. :)

Shella said...

Can i leave out the gelatine ?? I guess it will just become payasam then - wont it?? But lovely nonetheless.....

Happy cook said...

Veena thankyou

Cakelaw, yeah i fell in love with the mouild when i saw them too

Susan hi hi but what will we do without them, we won't have anyone to pick on :-)))

Shella if you din't like gelatine you can le&ave it out, but then the texture won't be same, but i think it doesn't make any difference for the taste.
