280g short grain rice
1.8L of milk

1 tsp vanilla bean paste
Rinse rice and then place in saucepan and cover with plenty of cold water, at least 2 cm above rice level. Bring to boil and cook for 5 minutes, the drain.
Bring the milk to boil and add the rice back into the pan, cover and simmer gently for 40 minutes. Stir gently every 10 minutes. The mixture will become creamy, test the rice is very soft. Ensure your rice doesn’t stick to the pan and burn.
Turn the heat off and add the vanilla paste and sugar and combine well. If you don’t want to use sugar you can use honey to sweeten your pudding. The vanilla paste and sugar will quickly dissolve in the pan. The pudding is now ready to serve.
