Sweet Tooty-Fruity-Nutty Rice Dessert

Arborio rice is Italian short-grain rice. It is named after the town of Arborio in the Po Valley, where it is grown. Cooked, the rounded grains are firm, creamy, and chewy, due to higher amylopectin starch content of this rice variety, thus they have a starchy taste of their own yet blend well with other flavors.
I wanted to try this rice dessert for satisfying my sweet tooth and rice cravings, but as I didn’t want to make the usual rice pudding/kheer. I made this dessert with my touch of creativity using different ingredients all throughout this recipe.

1 cup Arborio Rice
1 tbsp Butter (unsalted)
3 cups Water
¾ cup Sugar
¼ tsp Cardamom powder
2 tbsp Heavy Whipping cream
1 pinch of Saffron
¼ cup Semi Sweet Chocolate chips
For nut and fruit filling:
1 tbsp golden Raisins
1 tbsp chopped dates
1 tbsp sliced Almonds
1 tbsp chopped Walnuts
1 tbsp chopped Cashew nuts
2 tbsp fancy fruit cake mix
2 tbsp sweetened Condensed Milk

Making Sweet Rice:
1. In a sauté pan on medium heat add the butter and rice and sauté it for about 3 mins until the rice is bit 2. crispy or you can feel the rice is hot when you touch it.
3. Now pour the water and bring it to a boil keeping the flame to high.
4. After one boil, reduce the fame to low and cook it for about 10 mins or until the rice is cooked 3/4th.
5. Mix the saffron in 1tbsp of whipping cream to get a soft yellow color.
6. Add sugar, and whipping cream and mix well. Increase the flame to medium high and cook it until done or 5 mins more until it gets thick and there should be no water left.
7. Make sure that the rice is cooked through.
8. Split half of this rice to a separate bowl.
9. In another bowl add the chocolate chips with 1 tbsp of whipping cream and microwave it for about 30-60 secs or until the chocolate melts completely.
10. Now mix the second half cooked rice to the melted chocolates.
Fruit and nut filling:
11. Mix all the ingredients and keep it aside in a bowl
12. Of Sweet rice, Chocolate rice and Fruit filling.
13. You can assemble this two types of rice and fruit filling as you like, but I have shown two types of presentations.

14. You can choose any one of my presentations or you can get creative to make your own presentation.
