Greek rice pudding with cinnamon
Recipe for 4-6 servings:

4 1/2 cups of milk
3/4 cup rice for risotto
1 cinnamon stick
2 egg yolks, lightly beaten
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. grounded vanilla
1/2 cup sugar
Powdered cinnamon

Take a medium size pan, pour in the milk and add the cinnamon stick. Bring the milk to boil and let it simmer for about 5 minutes. Then add the reice and let it simmer for 15 minutes, stirring from time to time (you want to release the rice starch).

Beat the egg yolks lightly with some of the hot milk. Add the yolk/milk mixture to the rice, then stir in the sugar. Stir everything all the time, go crazy on the stiring! Continue to let it simmer until it is kind of custardy. Add both vanilla. Then cook further until the rice pudding has the texture you want it to have. Then pour it out into a bowl and let it cool over night in your fridge.

Before you serve, sprinkle some of the powdered cinnamon on top and serve it with the sesame seed crunch.

Καλή σας όρεξη! Enjoy!

Sesame seed crunch
Recipe for sesame seed crunch:

1 cup white sesame seeds
1/2 cup sugar
2 tbsp. honey
some vegetable oil
baking paper

Take two sheets of baking paper (wax paper) and grease them on one side with some vegetable oil. Put one of the baking papers on your inverted roasting tray or your kitchen counter if it’s made for heat.

Roast the sesame seeds without any oil in a non sticky pan at low heat. Shake the pan so that they’ll not burn. The seeds should be slightly golden and you can smell their great aroma. Put them on a plate.

Take a small pot and mix in sugar and honey. Then place onto medium heat and let it melt. Then boil and constantly mix. If its bubbling, cook it for about two more minutes and remove it from the heat. Put in and fold under the sesame seeds very well. Pour the mix on the baking paper. Now it has to go very quick! Cover the mixture with the other baking sheet (greased side on the mixture). Use a rolling pin and gently flatten out the sesame seed mixture to the thickness you want.

Let it cool down a bit and then put it onto a chopping board. Take one baking paper off, very carefully. Oil a big knife and cut the sesame seed crunch while it’s still warm. Then let it cool down completely.
