    Lemon and cardamom rice pudding for grown-ups

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 35 minutes plus chilling
    • Total time: 50 minutes 50 minutes

    Serves: 6


    1 unwaxed lemon
    750ml Duchy Originals from Waitrose Organic Whole Milk
    6 cardamom pods, lightly crushed
    125g short-grain pudding rice
    170ml double cream, lightly whipped
    25g caster sugar
    50g granulated sugar
    25g pine nuts, toasted


    1. Carefully pare the zest from the lemon in strips, leaving no white pith. Put the milk into a pan with the zest and cardamom pods. Bring to the boil then stir in the rice.

    2. Simmer for 5 minutes, stirring frequently, then cover and simmer very gently for a further 25 minutes until the mixture has thickened and the rice is tender. Remove the zest and pods and discard, transfer to a bowl and leave to cool completely, stirring occasionally to prevent a skin forming.
