Rice pudding

Autumn is approaching quickly now. We're still getting some nice and sunny days, but the air is getting crispier and the days shorter. Summer in Sweden means short nights - we're not getting midnight sun where we live, but around Midsummer there's only a couple of hours of darkness. As autumn approaches I always get surprised when the sun is starting to set before 10pm. But I know this is only the beginning - before long, it will be dark by four in the afternoon.

This desert is warm, sweet and comforting, and the smell and taste of coconut always brings me back to a faraway beach. Perfect for a chilly, dark autumn evening then.

Coconut rice pudding

2 servings

2 dl unsweetened coconut milk
3/4 dl milk
25 g brown sugar
1/5 vanilla pod
55 g glutinous (sticky) rice

Pour the coconut milk and milk in a sauce pan. Split open the vanilla pod, scrape out the seeds an put them in the pan. Throw in the scraped-out pod as well - it still has a lot of flavor in it. Add the sugar and the rice. Bring it to a slow simmer over very low heat. Let it simmer for about 30 minutes, stirring very frequently. Serve immediately.
