Take 3/4 cup of rice. Boil it in water. Then turn the heat way down so it cooks slowly. As the water boils down, add milk or cream (or milk and cream), and keep adding liquid, water or dairy, and stir every 10 or 15 minutes so it doesn't burn on the bottom. After one hour and before two (I think 1.5 hours is pretty good), let it cook down so the mixture is not too watery and nice and creamy looking.
|3/4 cup of rice fills a big pot!|
The rice expands to about 7 or 8 times its volume. That 3/4 cup will feed a family of 5. Set the table with butter, salt, sugar, cinnamon, raisins and jelly. Put whatever you want in it. I like salt and butter, the kids like cinnamon and sugar, my wife puts in raisins.
Dead simple, delicious, and fun.
I took this picture to show the incredible before and after size difference. Next to that big pot of risgrøt is 3/4 cup of rice, the amount I started with.
