Cool, creamy and delicate rose and cardamom set rice pudding.
Rose and cardamom when subtly done is one of my favourite flavour combinations. It immediately transports me to somewhere far away from here, somewhere unknown to me, somewhere Im yet to experience. Its exciting. Rice pudding on the other hand is home, its comfort and familiar. The different feelings they evoke are both welcome ones but conflicting. The flavours and textures however are not battling, the floral sweetness of the rose and earthy cardamom meld with the cool creamy rice perfectly. I think it works even better being chilled it seems to bring out the flavours.
These rose and cardamom rice puddings are set, you could cool them in a mould and turn them out onto a plate. I however wanted to use these beautiful little gasses because I just love the burnt amber colour of them so much. I hope you all have a wonderful week, good news is because it was a bank holiday here were already half way through the week tomorrow, yay!
