The trick to this pudding is to stir it frequently. It’s like a risotto. You need to stir it so that the starch comes out of the rice, which gives the dish its creaminess. You don’t have to constantly stir it for 45 minutes, but every few minutes give it a whirl. Have it for dessert or even breakfast. You’ll love it!
