Ingredients :

For 6 to 8 people.

175 grams of round rice.
1 litre of rice milk.
100 grams of sugar.
1 vanilla pod.
1 pinch of coarse salt.


Most rice pudding recipes recommend rinsing the rice before cooking. Personally, I don't rinse it. The mixture of the rice starch with the milk gives the rice pudding a creamy, smooth texture.

Put the rice milk in a saucepan. Cut the vanilla pod in half lengthwise. Run a small paring knife over each half to remove the seeds and put them in the milk. Add the remaining pieces of pod and heat to boiling. Add a pinch of coarse salt.

When the milk is boiling, reduce the heat, add the rice and stir. Leave to cook covered for 30 minutes, leaving a wooden spoon between the lid and the pan to avoid overflowing. It should be at a low boil. 

After 30 minutes, add the sugar, stir and cook covered for another 10 minutes.

Transfer the rice to a dish or serving pots and wrap with cling film. Leave to cool to room temperature and then keep in a cool place.
