Rosotto (Pink Rice Pudding)

Rosotto (Pink Rice Pudding)

Rosotto is a vegan rice pudding made with rice flour and rose cordial.  I named this pudding rosotto (playing with the name risotto) because roz in Greek means pink.

I must be the person who has made the most rice puddings in the world!

Here are a few:

Classic Ryzogalo (Greek Rice Pudding)

Vegan Lactose Free and Glyten Free Ryzogalo

Deconstructed Pavlova and Lemon Posset Ryzogalo

Ryzogalo with Quince

Baked Ryzogalo with Caramel

Baked Ryzogalo with saffron

Savory ryzogalo

This time I decided to make a vegan Ryzogalo, with coconut milk.  It is also gluten-free and lactose free.

I recently bought rice flour which I am falling in love with its flavour, so I used some which added to the taste but also speeded up the setting  time of the pudding.

I did not want to make the traditional flavour with cinnamon and made it with Triantafyllo (rose syrup), which I bring from Cyprus every time I visit.

This, together with the rose water, also added to the flavour with a wonderful aroma but also made the pudding beautiful giving it a pink colour and lovely aroma.

If you cannot find rose cordial and still want to make it pink, you can give it a different flavour by adding homemade pomegranate syrup or molasses  or grenadine.
