can you give more details of how you have made your pudding, ie. what type of rice, how you are cooking it, etc. That would give someone more idea of how to help you.

Re: Rice Pudding

i used Arborio rice and used the recipe for it on here i used a fan oven which i reduced the temp down to 140c instead of 150c and i was only meant to have 2 hours but i gave it five and it is still rock solid.

Method

This is simplicity itself, because all you do is mix the evaporated milk and whole milk together in a jug, then place the rice and sugar in the ovenproof dish, pour in the liquid and give it all a good stir. Grate the whole nutmeg all over the surface (it may seem a lot but it needs it), then, finally, dot the butter on top in little flecks.

Next just carefully pop the dish in the oven on the centre shelf and leave it there for 30 minutes, then slide the shelf out and give everything a good stir. Repeat the stirring after a further 30 minutes, then pop the dish back in the oven to cook for another hour, this time without stirring. At the end of this time the rice grains will have become swollen, with pools of creamy liquid all around them, and, of course, all that lovely skin!


this is the recipie i used

rice pudding

If you look at the ingredients list, it states 'pudding rice' not Arborio , I use arborio for risottos not puddings. I think that is your problem, wrong rice!
