Indian Rice And Carrot Pud With Pistachios

Serves four to six

Carrots don’t seem a likely contender for a king of puddings but they make great cakes, of course, and this Indian delicacy works wonderfully. The orange-blossom water gives it a beautiful exotic perfume which combines so well with the nuts. As well as the usual protein, pistachios provide significant quantities of vitamin E and potassium, both of which protect the heart and help lower cholesterol.

850ml/1.5 pints milk
2 tbspns basmati rice
450g/1 lb carrots, grated
Half a tspn ground cardamom
75ml/3 fl oz orange-blossom water
3 tbspns double cream
4 tbspns pistachio nuts, chopped

Boil the milk in a large saucepan. Add the rice and stir for two minutes. Turn down to a simmer and cook for a further 20 minutes, stirring frequently. Tip in the carrots and cook for another 15 minutes, until you have a sauce-like consistency – the carrots will absorb the milk.

Stir in the cardamom, orange-blossom water and cream. Put into individual ramekins and chill thoroughly. Serve sprinkled liberally with pistachios and be prepared for a surprising taste sensation.
