Servings 8 4 oz servings


  • 4 cups milk, whole
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup rice flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar, adjust to your taste
  • 3 tablespoons rosewater


  • Bring milk to a gentle simmer over medium heat, about 5-7 minutes.
  • Add water, flour and sugar and mix with a whisk to integrate the sugar and flour into the milk.
  • Reduce heat to low and stir continuously with a wooden spatula for 30 minutes.
  • Add the rosewater and continue to stir for 15-25 additional minutes or until the pudding has visibly thickened. Taste the pudding to make sure the flour has softened and no longer feels gritty.
  • Remove from the heat and using a ladle divide the pudding into individual serving bowls.
  • Place the pudding in the refrigerator and serve chilled.


Ferni can be garnished and served with slivered pistachios and rose petals.
