  1. Place the Rice in a pan of water, bring to the boil, and cook over a high heat until soft.
  2. While the Rice is cooking, stir the water, sugar, and Chios Mastic together in a pan over low heat. Cook until dissolved and the syrup is sticky, not runny, and not too thick. You want to be able to dip your doughnuts in it. Turn off the heat and put aside.
  3. Remove the Rice from the heat once cooked, drain any remaining water and then mash the Rice.
  4. Stir the sugar, milk powder, baking powder, beaten egg, pistachios, and cinnamon into the rice.

I hope you enjoyed that.

European Rice is high-quality Rice grown in Greece since the 1950s and in other European countries. There are two varieties: Indica Rice (long rain) and Japonica Rice (medium grain). European Rice has a high nutritional value, being rich in B vitamins, such as Niacin, Thiamine, Riboflavin and Selenium. The EU is both self-sufficient and a net exporter of Japonica rice. All European Rice complies with the Integrated Quality Management System for the Agricultural Production of Rice, which is based on good agricultural practices that respect the environment, protect the producer-grower’s health, and offer a healthy and safe product for consumers.
