Scale 200 g rice in a strainer, then wash under tap water.

Stage 2 - 3 min.
Rice pudding (riz au lait) : Photo of step #2
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 salted boiling water.

Then dry and rinse.

Stage 3 - 1 min.

In a pan, put rice, add 100 g caster sugar, 1 vanilla pod and 1 litre whole milk.

Stage 4 - 30 min.

Bring to boil stirring frequently with a spatula or a wooden spoon, to prevent sticking on the bottom.

Stage 5

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

Stage 6 - 2 min.
Rice pudding (riz au lait) : Photo of step #6
Off the heat, possibly add 300 g Real custard sauce (crème anglaise).

Stage 7

Your rice is ready, you can now divide it between small dishes and leave 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.

Keeping:

Several days in the fridge, in a closed jar.
