Mastic-flavored rice pudding and baked rice pudding


A recipe… two variations… From the classic sweet, a traditional dessert that we have all associated with our childhood in a more modern version that you will love!

Mastic, a unique material of Greek cuisine and tradition, gives an amazing aroma and elevates the traditional recipe to something very interesting…

Rice pudding flavored with mastic


  • 3/4 cup glazed rice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups water
  • 4 cups fresh milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mastic
  • 2 tablespoons cornflour
  • 1/2 cup milk to dilute the cornflour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • a little cinnamon for serving


  1. Bring the rice to a boil with the water and salt
  2. When it boils for about 10 minutes, add the sugar, the beaten mastic and the milk.
  3. Stir and lower the heat and wait for the rice to boil very well
  4. Once it boils, take half a cup of milk and dilute the cornflour and pour it into the pot
  5. Once tied, put it in bowls (around 6 come out)
  6. Place them in the fridge and before serving, pour the cinnamon on top

Rice pudding in the oven

With even richer taste… a different rice pudding… which now refers to recipes such as creme brulee etc…

  • Do the procedure as in the rice pudding with mastic… In the 3rd stage together with the milk we put 3 egg yolks… and we slowly pour in the pot.
  • Place in fireproof bowls in the oven in a bain marie
  • Bake until it gets a brown crust on the surface
