Step 1

Combine first 5 ingredients in heavy large saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat until mixture thickens and rice is very tender, stirring occasionally, about 1 hour.

Reduce heat to low. Whisk egg yolks and cream in small bowl. Gradually whisk in 1/2 cup rice mixture; return to same pan and cook 2 minutes, stirring constantly (do not boil). Remove from heat. Add chocolate; stir until melted. Stir in orange peel and cardamom. Transfer pudding to bowl; cover and chill until cold. (Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Keep refrigerated.)

Spoon pudding into bowls. Top with Dried Cranberry Compote.


Combine all ingredients in heavy medium saucepan and bring to boil. Cover and remove from heat. Let stand until cranberries have absorbed liquid but are still slightly chewy, about 1 hour. Refrigerate until cold. Can be prepared 2 days ahead. Keep refrigerated.
