This recipe is the microwave version which was on the side of a Whitworth's Brand Ground Rice packet along with the Baked version that I'm more familiar with. I've hunted for ages to try and find the old recipe I used to have when I was small and this looks like it. I'm sure my mum used to add a few drops of vanilla essence, a 'knob' of butter (a bit cut off the corner of a slab) and an egg white (possibly the whole egg, - can't remember :). She also used to add a little nutmeg and a little cinnamon and mix them in before cooking. Nice served hot or chilled with jam (jelly). IMPORTANT NOTE: Although originally listing as 'untried', since then I've actually made this version. The recipe as shown here is as it was shown on the packet. No Microwave power rating was given so timings must be assumed to be dependent on your machine. ALSO A WARNING: When I made it, once it boiled, it rose up to the top of the dish. Fortunately I was watching at the time so I stopped the microwave. In the end I found it necessary from that point to cook it on the defrost setting until it was suitably thick. (My machine has only Off/On/Defrost buttons - it's very old!). Took about the same amount of time - somewhere around 10 minutes overall. Notwitstanding that minor shock, it was absolutely wonderful to eat. Similar to semolina pudding, but much, much nicer. I added a couple of drops of vanilla flavor, a dash of nutmeg and a very small pinch of cinnamon before putting in the microwave and would recommend doing the same. Served as I did with a manually home-made coarse puree of fresh strawberries (and sweetener) and dollop of 'sweetenered' Greek-style yoghurt then sprinkled liberally with cinnamon. Absolutely heavenly! - I'll be making this a lot!!
