Rice pudding with fruit and nuts


Rice pudding with fruit and nuts
This is cooked like a normal rice pudding, but with fruit and nuts added halfway through: toasted almonds and pistachios, sautéed diced apple and strips of dried apricot.

These added flavours and textures make an already creamy rice pudding even more delicious.
