  1. Preheat the oven to gas 1, 140°C, fan 120°C. Put the pudding rice in a pan over low-medium heat with the coconut milk, milk, sugar and cardamom (if using). Simmer gently for 10 mins. Transfer to a 1.3ltr baking dish and bake for 40 mins or until the rice is tender. Set aside for 10 mins to cool slightly. it will look a little loose when you remove it from the oven but will thicken as it cools.
  2. Spoon into serving bowls and top with the diced mango and lime zest. Squeeze over a little lime juice and top with the almonds to serve.

Get ahead: The rice pudding can be made up to 1 day ahead and kept in the fridge.

Tip: Swap out the dairy and add extra coconut milk for a wicked vegan pud.
