Keeps in the fridge for up to 3 days
  1. Put the milk, cream, sugar and rice into a large pan and mix well. Bring slowly to the boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 45 minutes to 1 hour, stirring regularly, until the rice is tender and the liquid has reduced and thickened. It will continue to thicken on cooling.
  2. Remove from the heat and add rose water to taste. Spoon into a serving bowl, cover and chill.
  3. To serve, top the rice pudding with the fruits and nuts and drizzle over the honey.
