Essential Tools

  • chef knives
  • chopping board
  • wooden spoon/spatula
  • medium sized saucepan
  • measuring utensils


  • regular milk can be substituted for coconut milk if preferred and cream for coconut cream too
  • castor sugar is an alternative to palm sugar - you may need to use a little less as it's typically sweeter than palm sugar
  • make sure to stir the rice pudding gently and regularly.  Gentle stirring helps keep the rice grains intact and regular stirring stops it from sticking to the bottom and burning!
