Finally, put the pan in an oven at 356 degrees, for one hour. Then, remove it and let it cool.

During this time, constantly stir to avoid the rice sticking to the pot and as it cooks, whisk the egg yolks and mix them with the condensed milk.

Once the rice is cooked, add the egg yolks and condensed milk to it. Stir well and then store in the fridge.

When the rice pudding is cold, serve it in bowls and add the nuts and seeds of your choosing. Then, use the mint leaves to decorate it.
