SoulFood – Arroz Doce

We are currently lucky enough to have Grant Lloyd staying with us in Kerala as our Guest Chef. Having trained and worked closely with Jamie Oliver he has a wealth of knowledge and skill and has been getting in the kitchen every day coming up with new, delicious dishes for us. Inspired by our forthcoming Portugal pop up Grant came up with this Portugese sweet rice dessert known as Arroz Doce but has added a Keralan twist. It’s an easy tasty treat with ingredients straight out of the store cupboard!
