Step by step recipe:

    It is not essential, but I advise you to pre-cook rice (especially if you don't use a special dessert rice, also called round rice) 2 or 3 minutes in boiling water.

    Rice is ready when it has absorbed all the milk, it should be smooth and remain slightly creamy.

    Off the heat, add 300 g Real custard sauce (crème anglaise).

    2nd variation, chocolate rice pudding: add chocolate chips to the rice pudding while still hot in the pan. Mix well until all chocolate is melted.

    Then put in dish to cool.

Remarks:

If you don't have crème anglaise, instead you can add 2 eggs + 1 egg yolk to in the cooked rice while it it still hot.

It's a question of taste, but I prefer my rice pudding warm rather than cold. So I frequently put the dish in the microwave for a few seconds before eating.

You can also consider sprinkling some sugar on top, and pass it under the grill to caramelize.
