As seen on Paddock to Plate

15 minutes prep.

50 minutes cooking

Serves 6

Ingredients

  • 700 ml Peel Valley milk
  • 300 ml Peel Valley cream
  • 150 g carnaroli rice
  • 100 g castor sugar
  • 1 vanilla bean, halved lengthways
  • 1 cinnamon quill
  • 2 egg
To serve
  • Butter
  • Nutmeg, finely grated
  • Toasted almonds
Stewed rhubarb
  • 4 large stalks of rhubarb
  • 3 tablespoons caster sugar
  • Zested rind and juice of 1 orange
  • 1 vanilla bean, halved lengthways
  • 1 teaspoon rosewater syrup (see note)
  • 4 tablespoons water
  • 250 gm strawberries (about 1 punnet), hulled

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 160⁰c.
  2. Bring the milk, cream, rice, sugar, vanilla bean and cinnamon quill to the simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally to dissolve the sugar, then remove the vanilla bean and cinnamon quill. Set aside to cool a little, then whisk in egg yolks and pour into a 1 litre-capacity ovenproof baking dish. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until golden on top and just set.
  3. Remove from the oven, add a few knobs of butter to the top for extra richness and shine, then add a sprinkling of freshly grated nutmeg.
  4. To make the stewed rhubarb, remove any leaves from the rhubarb and cut the stalks into cubes and combine in a saucepan with sugar, vanilla bean, orange zest, rosewater syrup and water. Bring to a place on a medium-high heat, and bring to a simmer, stirring until sugar dissolves, then cook for 7-8 minutes or until rhubarb is tender.
  5. Remove from the heat, pour over strawberries in a bowl, add orange juice and stand for 10 minutes for flavours to infuse.
To Serve: Serve the rice pudding and stewed rhubarb warm, scattered with toasted almonds. Note: rosewater syrup is available from Middle Eastern grocers, but if it’s unavailable you can add rosewater to taste. Rosewater is available from select delicatessens.
