Cooking Instructions

Place milk, cream, vanilla pod, star aniseed, cloves, cinnamon sticks, sugar and zest into a saucepan. Bring to boiling point. Add rice and reduce to a simmer.
Simmer for 30 minutes. Stir occasionally to prevent burning. When rice is cooked, add condensed milk and butter. Remove from heat. Serve warm with Amarula.

To make the pears: Place all ingredients in a saucepan, except pears. Stir over a low heat until sugar dissolves. Place pears into saucepan, bring to a boil and then reduce heat to a simmer.
Cook pears for about 10 minutes or until tender. Remove pears from pan and allow to cool. Spoon the rice pudding into glasses and top each portion with a pear half.
