Rice Pastiera Recipe of of 06-04-2017 [Updated on 06-04-2017]

There pastiera of rice is a variant of the classic Neapolitan pastiera where wheat is replaced by rice. There remains a delicious shortcrust pastry shell which, in this case, I made with corn and rice flour to create a gluten-free dessert which harmonizes with the soft filling.
The rice pastiera recipe, rather than Neapolitan, is typical of the Sannio area and after a search among my sources I tried this recipe which obviously is not proposed as the original but a valid alternative to a dessert that is a cornerstone of Easter for us Campania.
Well girls that's all for today, in the next few days I will give you other delicious ideas to make your Easter lunch the best but for now, if you want, try your hand at this delicious rice cake.
Basins and good day: *


How to make the pastiera of rice

Finally, add the rice flour and knead until a homogeneous mixture is obtained. Once you have a homogeneous mixture, wrap it in cling film and keep it in the fridge for at least an hour.

Meanwhile, heat the butter, 100 grams of sugar, the wildflower water and the lemon peel in a saucepan.
As soon as it is hot, add the rice and stir.
Let it cook for 30 minutes or until everything thickens and let it cool.

Meanwhile, sift the ricotta and mix it with the sugar.
Now add the eggs and mix.

At this point, add the rice cream, without the lemon peels, the vanilla and the cinnamon.
Mix well to obtain a homogeneous cream.

Take the dough back and roll it out to a thickness of 3 mm on a floured pastry board.
Use it to line a greased mold, remove the excess dough and prick the base.

Put the filling inside the dough up to 1 cm below the edge of the mold.
On a floured pastry board, roll out the leftover pastry and form strips.

Pastiera of rice

It cannot miss on the party tables, its homeland is Campania but it is loved throughout Italy for its unmistakable aroma ... we are talking about the Neapolitan Pastiera! One of the most irresistible desserts of our tradition that has always inspired us with delicious variations, such as the pastiera with hazelnuts and cocoa and the pastiera with almonds. But we didn't stop there, we wanted to experiment with a new version to enrich the Easter dessert menu, the rice pastiera, as an alternative to the typical cooked wheat, a perfect substitute for obtaining the same yield and consistency of the filling. The aroma of orange blossom which we did not want to give up and which distinguishes this dessert with its unmistakable scent is inevitable. The result did not disappoint our expectations: a rich, aromatic dessert with a harmonious combination of textures and flavors, and we are sure that the rice pastiera will convince even the most skeptical admirers of the classic recipe. If you love to experiment with delicious variations of late Campania recipes, try our rustic baba with sausage and broccoli!

How to prepare the rice pastiera

Sift the flour on a work surface and make the classic fountain add the cold butter from the refrigerator, cut into cubes, the eggs, the sugar and the grated zest of 1 lemon in the center.

Mix the ingredients very quickly to ensure that the butter does not heat up too much, until you have obtained a sandy and firm mixture. Work it giving it the shape of a sphere and let it rest in the fridge for about half an hour, covered with a cloth or wrapped in cling film.

Boil the rice in boiling water and drain it just al dente.

In a bowl, mix all the ingredients that make up the filling: cow's milk ricotta, boiled rice, eggs, sugar, candied orange, cinnamon and orange blossom water.

Mix everything well until you get the mixture that will fill your pastiera.

Remove the pastry from the fridge and roll it out on a lightly floured work surface, using a rolling pin. When you have obtained a large more or less regular circle, roll it around the floured rolling pin and, very gently, place it on a previously buttered hinged pan with high edges.

Unroll the pastry sheet and arrange it well inside the pan, so that it is completely lined.

Cut it to size by creating an inner edge of about 3/4 cm in height. Remove the excess pastry and keep it aside to make strips that will decorate the pastiera.

Fill the pastry with the mixture, garnish the surface with the strips, cross them perpendicularly to each other, turn the edge over on itself and decorate it with the prongs of a fork.

Bake the pastiera in a preheated oven at 180 ° for about 45/50 & # 8242.

When cooked, let it cool and serve with a sprinkling of icing sugar.


There pastiera of rice & egrave a sweet which basically wants imitate there classic Neapolitan pastiera. Although it is an imitation, we absolutely must not belittle this cake because it really is good, delicate And very fragrant.

When it arrives Easter I get the urge to pastiera incredible. It will be influenced by the frequent photos that go around the web but then I love it. Maybe I don't propose it very often because it is far from my traditions and in my house the most popular desserts are the classic breakfast cakes and desserts with apples, and then frankly I also struggle to find some ingredients, such as l & rsquowater with orange flowers and the cooked corn.

In any case I do everything to prepare her for Easter also because the pastiera It is one of those sweets that cannot be missed for this occasion.

This year, however, the situation is different. I can't do my shopping in the well-stocked supermarket which is a few miles from home. The one is nice and big and the cooked wheat is always in the sweets section. What do I do: no pastiera this year? Are we kidding ?!

The solution is always required and it will be enough to replace the cooked wheat with another cereal, rice for example will be perfect and I assure you that the difference will be very nuanced.

The rice then it is very delicate and for those who do not like cooked wheat it could be a great solution.

Do you know that I have not even found the orange blossom water or candied fruit? - & ldquoMa che pastiera & egrave? & rdquo- i will say Neapolitans! Forgive me ahaha but somehow I had to make do and in any case something that resembled as much as possible the pastiera I wanted to get it. This is a very practical recipe that meets the needs of the period.

At the same time I also discovered, thanks to the publication of this video, that a Naples some families prepare it with rice. I feel better now ahaha.

In any case, do not diminish it because even if it is a kind of imitation, it is really good.

Masala milk rice paster English version

To prepare the pastiera rice masala in icing suzette I deconstructed, disassembled and reassembled the foundations of three cultures: the italian rice pastiera, the French crepe suzette and Indian masala tea will never be the same. Contamination of shapes and aromas, flavors and colors sets this dessert that tastes embrace, sweet cuddle Indo-European. Cardamom and cinnamon, king and queen of spices, undisputed reign of a cohort of black pepper, cloves and fresh ginger: so was born the masala, which is the mixture that is used for the masala tea, the national drink made of Indian black tea with milk, creamy and extremely aromatic.
Grand Marnier, the famous French liqueur dominates in the icing used for crepe suzette, probably the most famous French dessert in the world. A glaze that provides, in addition to the Grand Marnier, the use of powdered sugar, butter, orange juice and lemon juice. Well, my contamination involves the crepe suzette with no cracks but accompanied the pastiera rice milk masala.

Then we come in Campania. The pastiera, variations in grain or rice bran is a sweet world famous. I chose the rice because the rice in India is king and there are many Indian sweets made of rice. The original recipe of rice Neapolitan pastiera, then, here is contaminated masala, frosting suzette and integral shortbread: become frosted, more rustic but equally sweet, less flowery and more spicy. Sweet, very sweet because they are sweet Indian sweets. Sweetness is countered by slightly sour aftertaste of suzette glaze, in a balanced equilibrium that delights teases the senses.
