i got the recipe for this in the cooking: a commonsense guide cookbook
i have made a few adjustments myself, and you might too depending on your own personal tastes
this is my first entry into the Dessert Contest, so if you like it, I'd appreciate a vote :D
Step 1: The Simple Ingredients
YOU WILL NEED
90g short-gran rice (i use about 100g of jasmine rice)
1litre of milk ( i use full cream)
1/2 cup caster sugar (you can use white and i add a bit more!)
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
ta-da! thats all you'll need
various measuring cups (see above to be specific)
a teaspoon measure
a wooden spoon or spatula
Step 2: Begin....
Add the sugar and vanilla, place over medium heat and heat until it is almost boiling, stirring occasionally to help sugar dissolve and not burn
WARNING: watch your mixture as it begins to boil as the milk sometimes reacts or something and turns into a strange cream-textured frothing mess that may boil over! if you see the milk rapidly rising (it does this in seconds) simply pull it off the heat, and/or clap a lid over it! once its calmed down after a few minutes,you can put it back
Step 3: Add the Rice
lower the heat so it simmers and walk away! yes! you only need to come in every little while and stir it a bit!
cook for roughly one hour or until the rice is tender and has soaked up most of the milk (the mixture should be nice and thick)
you may also need to add more milk during/after cooking as the rice may soak up to much and become dry
when you add the rice you can also add a variety of other ingredients such as
grated orange rind
other dried fruit
( i myself have only tried sultanas)
Step 4: Serve and Enjoy!
need some suggestions? you could try...
powdered cinnamon (one of my favorites)
honey, maple syrup or golden syrup
or anything you like!!!!!
please post any comments, questions or suggestions :D
