Step by step recipe

Stage 1 - 2 min.
Rice pudding (riz au lait)
Scale 200 g rice in a strainer, then wash under tap water.

Stage 2 - 3 min.
Rice pudding (riz au lait)
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.
Rice pudding (riz au lait)
In a pan, put rice, add 100 g caster sugar, 1 vanilla pod and 1 litre whole milk.

Stage 4 - 30 min.
Rice pudding (riz au lait)
Bring to boil stirring frequently with a spatula or a wooden spoon, to prevent sticking on the bottom.

Stage 5
Rice pudding (riz au lait)
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)
Off the heat, possibly add 300 g Real custard sauce (crème anglaise).

Stage 7
Rice pudding (riz au lait)
Your rice is ready, you can now divide it between small dishes and leave to cool.
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.
Several days in the fridge, in a closed jar.
Home made.

Classic italian recipe (the name means "pull me up" or more poetically, "take me up to the sky"). It's similar to a charlotte in its structure: layers of flavoured biscuits between layers of smooth cream.
