Indian Basmati Rice Pudding

Indian Basmati Rice Pudding recipe, brought to you by MiNDFOOD.

Serves 4

85g caster sugar

570ml milk

1 Fairtrade vanilla pod, slit open

200g Fairtrade basmati rice

110ml double cream

4 tbsp Fairtrade soft brown sugar

1 Preheat the grill. Place the caster sugar, milk, and vanilla pod into a pan and bring to the boil.

2 Add the rice, reduce the heat, and simmer gently for 8-10 minutes. Add the cream and simmer for a further 4-5 minutes until the rice is tender. Remove the vanilla pod.

3 Divide the rice pudding between 4 heat-proof serving bowls, and sprinkle over the brown sugar.

4 Slide the bowls under the hot grill, and leave until the sugar is bubbling and caramelized. Alternatively, if you have one, you could use a kitchen blowtorch to glaze the rice pudding.

Serve immediately.
