How to Make It

Step 1    

In a fine-mesh sieve, rinse the rice under cold water until the water runs clear. Transfer the rice to a medium saucepan. Add the water and salt and bring to a boil. Add 2 tablespoons of the butter, cover and cook over low heat until the water is almost completely absorbed, about 15 minutes.

Step 2    

Stir in the milk and sugar and bring to a boil over moderate heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the rice is tender, about 7 minutes. Stir in the orange-flower water and simmer for 1 minute. Transfer the rice pudding to a bowl and let cool; the pudding will firm up.

Step 3    

Meanwhile, in a small skillet, melt the remaining 1 teaspoon of butter. Add the almonds and cook over moderately high heat, stirring, until golden, about 6 minutes. Transfer the almonds to a plate to cool. Sprinkle the almonds over the pudding and serve.
