M for Milchreis

15 Apr

Milchreis literally translates to ‘Milk Rice’ or another way to say is ‘German Rice Pudding’.    There’s no real brainy or brownie behind what this dish is.  It is our very own milk, rice & sugar cooked together with additive such as Vanilla bean and finally garnished with Cinnamon powder!

Milchreis is cooked slowly and for long to make it more mushy.  It is devoured as a dessert and some times served in the office canteens for lunch & served warm.

One can also get ready to make or frozen milch reis in the super market that you buy it & cook it at home quickly.  At times, it can also have other flavours like apple.

Back home, we don’t use vanilla or cinnamon but just make ‘Paal Saadam’ at home for kids 🙂   One safe option if you are a vegetarian and want to eat rice and still cannot go wrong 😉
