Ingredients
  Whole milk 28 Ounce
  Grated nutmeg 1 Teaspoon (Fresh)
  Vanilla pods 2 , split, seeds scraped out
  Caster sugar 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Basmati rice 14 Ounce
  Orange zest 4
  Orange juice 4
  Fresh mint 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs), chopped
  Icing sugar 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Greek style yogurt 14 Ounce
  Oranges 2 , peeled and segmented, to garnish
  Mint sprigs 4 (For Garnish)
Directions

For the rice pudding, place the milk, grated nutmeg, vanilla pod and seeds, and caster sugar into a saucepan and bring to the boil, stirring until the sugar is dissolved.

Add the rice, stir well and then reduce the heat and simmer gently for 10-12 minutes, or until all of the liquid has been absorbed and the rice is tender.

For the yoghurt, mix together the orange zest and juice, chopped mint, icing sugar and Greek-style yoghurt in a small bowl. Place into the fridge to chill for 10-12 minutes before serving.

To serve, spoon the rice pudding into four footed chilled bowls and top each serving with a dollop of orange and mint yoghurt.

Garnish with the orange segments and mint leaves and serve.

Variation: Use mango in place of orange segments

Story
Growing up my mum made puddings and I quickly learned to make them. This is very easy and quick, but wonderful.
