Stir in the pudding rice and simmer slowly for 1-2 hours until the milk has all but gone and you have thick gooey rice. Squeeze the lemon juice into the rice then cover with clingfilm and leave to cool. Fold in the cream and chill.

To prepare the chocolate discs place a large flat tray oiled and covered tightly in clingfilm in the fridge.

When set cut out 24 circles using a 3in cutter and return to the fridge.

For each portion fill three 3in cutters with mousse. Put a cylinder of mousse in the centre of a plate cover with a chocolate disc another layer of rice a disc and a final layer of rice and chocolate. Decorate the top with fresh mango and a sprig of mint.
