Caramelised rice & carrot pudding

Caramelised rice & carrot pudding(2)

Yesterday was cold and wintry….more so than it has been so far this winter; the kind of day when you cuddle up in bed with a hot water bottle, a book and a bed full of cats……bliss.  I finished my book early afternoon and strolled down to the kitchen, followed by cats, to throw together a bowl full of traditional rice pudding which I had been craving for a while…but I wanted it to be sort of different – creamier and a little caramely? With nothing to lose I went ahead and did it and am I glad I did. The caramel took no time and I decided to add a grated carrot which made the texture more interesting and gave the pudding a warm glow, so here we have caramelised rice & carrot pudding, at your service!

I used Delia Smith’s recipe which is simple and works every time.  Use 150 grams of sugar and 3 tablespoons of cold water – read her illustrated instructions carefully, it is simple and works beautifully
