Top Tips – Lemongrass and Ginger Rice Pudding

If you like skin on your rice pudding you will get an amazing skin!!! If you don’t like skin you can either; place a sheet of grease-proof paper on the surface of the rice pudding during cooking or, peel off the skin and throw it in the bin (or give it to someone who loves the skin).

I bake this in the oven. It needs much less attention that cooking of the hob and, I think, you get a better flavour from baked puddings. If you are short of time you can cook over a gentle heat on the hob for 20-25 minutes.

Recipe – Lemongrass and Ginger Rice Pudding

Difficulty easy
Serves 6
Preparation time 10 minutes
Cooking time 120 minutes

Ingredients – Lemongrass and Ginger Rice Pudding

200 grams pudding (short-grain) rice
1 litre non-dairy milk (I used unsweetened soya milk)
80 grams sugar (or a sweetener you prefer)
1 teaspoon (~5 grams) freshly grated ginger
1 stalk fresh lemongrass

Method – Lemongrass and Ginger Rice Pudding

1. Preheat the oven to 170 C (fan)
2. Place the rice, non-dairy milk, sugar and grated ginger in a suitable baking dish and mix well
3. Trim the lemon grass stalk and remove any discoloured or marked outer stalk. Bash the lemongrass stalk with something heavy (to release the flavour) and press gently in to the rice mixture
4. Place in the oven and carefully stir every 30 minutes to make sure the lemongrass flavour mixes well. Check the rice pudding after 90 minutes. Depending on your oven it may take up to 2 hours
5. Serve with non-dairy milk, custard or cream.
