Spiced rice pudding with blackberry compote
- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 6
For the compote
- STEP 1
Cook the rice following pack instructions – don’t be tempted to cook it until al dente – it will not continue to cook in the milk later, so it needs to be nice and soft at this point.
- STEP 2
Meanwhile, mix the cornflour to a paste with a little of the milk until smooth. Add this to a saucepan with the remaining milk, condensed milk, cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, vanilla and a good pinch of salt. Stir until smooth, then bring to a simmer. Turn down to very low heat and leave to gently infuse while the rice cooks.
- STEP 3
When the rice is cooked, drain well, then add to the warm milk mixture. Turn up the heat and bubble until thick and creamy – this will take about 20-25 mins.
- STEP 4
To make the blackberry compote, empty the blackberries into a saucepan, add the agave syrup and bring to a simmer. Boil for a few mins. Cool for a few mins before serving, or serve at room temperature with the rice pudding.
