Some recipes needn’t be complicated. This is a basic outline for a lovely rice pudding but the options of customising it to your taste are endless, for example, you could add white chocolate, but remember to cut the sugar in half. One Christmas I added rose water and pistachio nut to give it a Turkish delight twist.
