    Arroz Con Leche

    Ricardo Gibbs, of Rick's Café in London, cooks this Spanish version of rice pud slowly, like his Galician mother did. But you can opt for the short cut.

    • Preparation time: 5 minutes
    • Cooking time: 30 minutes
    • Total time: 35 minutes 35 minutes

    Serves: 4


    • 250g pudding rice
    • 800ml-1 litre whole milk
    • 1 cinnamon stick
    • 100g caster sugar
    • Finely grated zest of 1 lemon
    • 50ml double cream (optional)


    1. Put everything except the cream into a pan and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes or until the rice is tender. Stir regularly.
    2. Add more milk if necessary. Stir in the cream, if using, and serve.
