Comfort food

Thought I should do something different for breakfast so instead of the usual oats I decided to prepare some cream of rice that I had bought last year for a dessert recipe I had seen on youtube. And I am so glad I did because it tasted absolutely heavenly! It turned out to be an easy recipe too. I am happy to say it is now a part of my list of comfort foods.

Cream of rice is gluten free as well as fat and cholesterol free. It is a good source of minerals like iron, manganese and selenium and vitamin Bs like thiamine and niacin. What’s more it is also easily digestible.


Milk – 1 1/2 cups

Cream of rice – 2 tbsp mixed with a little water

Almonds – chopped 1 1/2 tbsp

Walnuts – chopped 1 tbsp

Raisins – 1 tbsp

Cardamom powder – pinch

Any kind of sweetener – as per taste


  1. Heat the milk on medium and let it come to a simmer.
  2. Add the rice and water mixture to the milk and stir. As the entire mixture starts thickening, turn off the heat and add the rest of the ingredients reserving 1/2 tbsp of almonds for garnish.
  3. If the mixture becomes too thick add a little more milk to thin it.

Note – Instead of cardamom you may add 1/4 tsp of vanilla.
