Preparation time: 5 mins

Firstly you need to rinse the rice in cold water. Do this several times to remove excess starch.

Put the rice in a bowl and then fill the bowl with hot water. Leave to soak for about 12 minutes.

Add the rice to a saucepan along with the ground cardamon, milk, sugar and cream.

Bring to the boil and stir constantly. Bring back down to a simmer and leave for 20 minutes. Add more sugar if you think it needs it.
