Rice Pudding with Strawberries stewed in Lemongrass and Lime

As it’s strawberry season I chose the rice pudding with strawberries stewed in lemongrass and lime from page 230. You can read here about Ina’s cooking experience.

I was a bit sceptical, since first I never used fresh lemongrass and second lemongrass and ginger in rice pudding? I didn’t know, if I would like that. But indeed I liked that! I loved it! Loved it a lot even! It’s one of my favourite recipes out of the book. I was so hooked by the whole dish. It’s very delicious. I can’t emphasize that enough.

The rice pudding is already very good on it’s own. I’ve could have eaten it right out of the pot. The strawberries are also delicious. The lime and the lemongrass are matching perfect here. The ginger only gives hint of its flavour without being sharp or too spicy. It reminded me a bit of our holiday in Thailand, not that we’ve eaten there something similar, it’s just the flavour in general. But that’s a good thing, thinking about holiday while eating a dish, isn’t it.

As I’m praising this dish so much, I can’t let you go without the recipe. Because this will give you the essence of the book. It’s a great book with great recipes, and that’s just one of them. But one of the best ones ;).

What’s really important about this dish is to eat it while it’s warm or lukewarm. You don’t reach the flavour and the texture again, after having it stored in the fridge (which is quite normal, when you’re only 2). Don’t do it. Just eat two bowls or a large one. Trust me, it will be no problem.
