In a small saucepan, combine the basmati rice with the whole milk, sugar and cardamom pods. Stir and bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.

Transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker once it has cooled.
Coconut cream sauce

Candied grapefruit zest
- 2 pink grapefruits
- 100 g grapefruit juice

Using a zester, remove the zest from one of the grapefruits. Transfer the zest to a small saucepan filled with chilled water. Bring the water to a boil and then drain the water. Repeat this step once more, then reserve and set aside.
In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine 100 grams of chilled water, 100 grams of sugar and 100 grams of grapefruit juice. Bring the mixture to a boil and stir to fully dissolve the sugar. Reduce heat and stir in the grapefruit zest. Simmer until the peels turn translucent.
