It is not only a good option for breakfast but also for any meal during the day. This porridge is nutritious and tasty. So, that is why almost every cuisine in the world has its own recipe for a rice porridge. The skeleton for the recipe stays the same. You use rice and milk but also add some extra ingredients for some flavor and the level of sweetness you would like to have.

If you have been wondering, whether you should make porridge with water or milk, the answer is both. There are endless possibilities for you to make this porridge. The first one is to use leftover preboiled rice and to heat it up together with milk. You can also boil rice in water and only then pour milk, as I will do in this recipe. Or instead of water use milk from the very beginning. Add jam of your choice, fresh or dried berries, vanilla or cinnamon and make this porridge the most delicious breakfast adjusted to your taste.

What kind of rice is used for porridge? You had better use short/round grain rice for making milk porridge. After boiling short grain rise becomes very tender and soft. It absorb more liquid while cooking that is why it is suitable for sweet dishes.

What is ratio of rise to liquid for porridge recipe? As a rule, you should use 4.5 part of liquid for 1 part of rice for getting the consistency that you see in the photos. To make porridge runnier, for example, use 2 parts of water for boiling rice and then 3 parts of milk for the next step.

How long do you boil rice for porridge? I tend to cook rice 10-15 minutes in water (until it fully evaporates) and then 10- 15 minutes in milk. So, you will spend around 30 minutes to cook rice porridge. Do not forget to add up 5-10 minutes of porridge cooling down process before serving. So, 40 minutes and your breakfast is ready.
