1 teaspoon vanilla extract or 1 vanilla pod, split
25 g (1 oz) butter
Place all the ingredients in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer gently for 25–28 minutes, stirring frequently and adding more milk if necessary, until the rice is creamy and just tender.
Remove the vanilla pod, if using, spoon the rice pudding into bowls and serve immediately.
