Hot Masala Lentil Soup & Lamb Kofta Curry). Such a waste to our money as well if we don't save ingredients or leftovers (Dory Fish Sandwich & Pineapple Bread Pudding). Of course for Malaysians, I bet we are never short of cooked white rice (Mango Basmati Rice Pudding) which can be saved (Rice Vadai & Anchovies Fried Rice). The idea of making rice (Rice Congee With Condiments) pudding from leftover rice isn't totally mine. It's my mom's recipe which I tweeted. She makes the thick gooey rice pudding. Cooked over low heat and served in small glasses with spoons. I took a short-cut (Pumpkin Jelly). I didn't feel like using glasses to serve the pudding neither stirring the mixture over low heat. I used cupcake cases - more convenient to avoid washing up the glasses and the pot used for stirring. I divided the rice mixture between the cases, placed in a muffin tray and baked. This rice pudding turned out almost the same as mum's and yes, you still need a spoon to eat it. But if you chill it, it will glide easily from the case. Dessert time everyone (Fried Apple Fritters, Chocolate Rum Tart & Thin Apple Pie).
