Cook's Tips:

This recipe uses arborio rice, the type of rice used to make risotto. There is no need to rinse it before cooking as this would remove the starchy coating that creates its creaminess.

We recommend using a fine mesh strainer to strain the milk and egg mixture before cooking. Sometimes the egg whites don’t thoroughly blend into the mixture which results in bits of scrambled egg whites in the pudding.
