I have been making this for years, but with a slight variation. Instead of evaporated milk, I just use regular milk, and I add raisins, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves (all to taste). I recently made more of this than I actually wanted one morning (had an odd amount of leftover rice), so I put the other half back in the fridge, and the next morning it was even better! I had to add a little milk because the rice and raisins had soaked up so much overnight, but the flavors had melded very nicely overnight!

This recipe is easy, and a great way to use excess rice (as I'm always making too much when I cook up a curry). My husband doesn't like it, but he hates half of all known sweet things, so nuts to him. I LOVE it. Just like rice pudding, but without the wait!

This is a pretty good recipe. It seems to be a variation of a breakfast recipe that my mom would make me when I was younger. Instead of evaporated milk she would use regular milk and the dish would not be heated. This gave it sort of a cereal substitute feel and TBH I like it lot better. As another variation, try using my modifications and instead of using rice use ~half-dollar sized pieces of bread. Good for when you just didn't have enough left over rice to make this :)

Have had this for breakfast almost every day this past week. I will, from now on, always make extra rice for dinner so I can have this for breakfast. I've use regular milk and cinnimon/sugar mixture. I've used coconut milk (my favorite) and this morning I use condensed sweet milk since I was out of every other type of milk and it was sooo yummy (no sugar needed). I may make this tonight for dessert. Havn't been paying much attention to quantities tho. I just kind of pour it in. I like it soupy. Great with bananas over the top. Good with raisins too. Thanks for posting. This will be a staple at my house.

I make this all the time with left over rice. I have even been known to make extra rice just to make it! I use regular milk and sugar, and it is a great little snack, or even dessert
