Cardamom rice pudding with spiced plums


  • For the rice pudding

  • For the plums


  • 1.

    Pour the milk into a heavy bottomed pan with the cinnamon stick. Bring it to the boil and stir in the rice and vanilla extract

  • 2.

    Simmer on a very low heat for about 30 minutes, making sure that you keep stirring so the rice does not stick to the pan

  • 3.

    Crush the cardamom pods in a pestle and mortar and extract their seeds. Throw the pods away and add the crushed seeds to the sugar

  • 4.

    When the rice looks like a soupy milky risotto but still has a little bite, stir in the raisins, almonds and cardamom sugar or maple syrup and cook for another 5 – 10 minutes on low adding more milk if it starts to get dry

  • 5.

    For the plums – chop them up roughly. Place in a pan with the water or juice, star anise, cloves and ginger syrup/cordial – heat through gently until the plums are slightly softened and the flavours have infused
