Method

Slice the carrots and cook them gently in the butter, together with the sliced onion, for 2 or 3 minutes. Add the stock, and season with salt, pepper and a pinch of sugar. Add the uncooked rice. Cook gently until all is tender. Rub through a sieve or moulin without draining and dilute the puree with the milk. Check the seasoning. Add a nut of butter and a glass of sherry at the last moment.
