      "Risengrynsgrøt" is a porridge made of short-grain rice and simmered (at least an hour) in milk. (I'm not saying that long grain rice won't work, but it will be a different texture). Boiling the rice in water first is common, but actually not neccesary. Short grains gives it a creamy, delicious texture, preferably NOT "al dente".

      Norwegians usually doesn't mix in sugar with the milk. They add a small amount of sugar and cinnamon (and butter in the centre) on top afterwards.This is actually a dinner. The leftovers, however, are used as a dessert. You just add an equal amount of whipped cream (with sugar and vanilla), and this is called Rice Cream. Yummy!

      Thank you for this recipe, it is always interesting to see what happens to traditional recipes as they leave their origin. Raisins and nutmeg is unheard of in norwegian rice porriges , but is common in other norwegian porridges and desserts.

      This was pretty good... i used left over basmati rice and used about 3 cups of milk... it turned out maybe even a little too creamy?! I think what is really throwing me off is the nutmeg, it's all together too much for my taste... glad my DH eats everything i make though, lol! :)

      Total comfort food at its best!! Thanks so much for posting this. I added 2 sticks of cinnamon from the start and included the raisins and vanilla to the recipe. I agree, it took about 50 minutes to get it to the consistency I wanted it to be at, so if I'm in a rush, next time, I may cut back to 3 cups of milk, but it was definitely worth the wait.
