In a saucepan, heat the cream to a boil and add the rice, sugar, orange zest, cardamom pods, and vanilla bean. Stir rice mixture until it becomes thick and creamy. Cook for approximately 15 minutes.
To make the chili pineapple, melt the sugar in a saute pan and caramelize. Add the pineapple slices and cook for approximately 3 minutes. Add the butter and the chili powder and cook an additional minutes. Set aside until ready to use.
Combine the green tea and sugar in a saucepan and heat the mixture to dissolve the sugar completely in order to make a syrup. Add the apple puree and allow the syrup to cool completely. Add the egg white and process the sorbet in an ice cream machine. Store in freezer until ready to use.
To make the tuilles, whip together the egg whites, egg, confectioners' sugar, and bread flour until they are blended well and smooth. Fold in the orange and lemon zest and allow the batter to rest overnight in the refrigerator. Spread the batter onto a greased and floured pan into half dollar sizes and bake for a couple of minutes until edges just begin to turn brown. Immediately remove from oven and allow to cool flat.
To serve, spoon rice pudding on plate and top with chili pineapple slices. Using 2 tuilles, create a sandwich with a sorbet scoop between the tuilles. Place on plate and serve.
