Baked Rice Pudding

Brings back memories. Mum and her Indian rice pudding. The one, all ingredients in one and over the stove making rice pudding (Pineapple Bread Pudding). Mothers those days? Have you realise they like the overdosing of sugar into desserts? By Far. As far as I know (Marble Cake, Chocolate Rum Tart & Poached Pears In Citrus Syrup). Indeed. And of course rice, we Indians I think are one of the biggest consumers of rice. In fact, I am one of them. Rice is my love. Forever (Jeera/Cumin Rice, Lemon Cashew Rice, Rice Congee With Condiments & Anchovies Fried Rice). When left over rice is a concern, generally, the recipes I have already attached are the indicators to our, one of it, one of our fav Malaysian dish. Nasi Goreng or Fried Rice. But not necessarily must be. You can, trust me, believe me, make this Baked Rice Pudding from leftover cooked white rice. Yes. I did it. What should hold you back? Nonetheless, I decided it should be the baked version instead of over the stove like my mums. Pretty much I think we need the common ingredients and cherries? They are so lovely. Prettiness for a simple deco right?

3 cups leftover cooked white rice
1 cup milk (can use either carton or coconut milk)
1/2 cup softened salted butter
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 cup brown sugar (or as per taste)
10 red cherries - chopped
Mix all ingredients in a bowl.
Place paper cases into a muffin tray.
Divide rice mixture into equal portions.
Add into each paper cases.
Bake at preheated oven at 180c for about 40 mins or until the top becomes golden brown.
Remove and cool down.
Optional: either served as it is or chilled.

  2. Made of rice? This is something new to me. Wonderful idea instead of the usual fried rice for leftover rice. Lovely, dear!

  3. Oh yum, just saw this on FB and had to come for a visit, I know I've been rubbish and a bit irregular with the commenting these days, trying to do so much at once! As you know, living in Malaysia, it's the fasting month. Because it's summer, we start at 3 and don't break our fast until 9 pm! Doesn't leave me with much energy as I don't get my caffeine fix!
    Enough about me, I love rice pudding! I have never used leftover rice before, always using pudding rice. Coconut milk? That's a new one for me, I will have to try it this weekend for buka puasa! Thanks for the idea!

Malaysian Sodhi (Indian Coconut Milk Stew)

Sodhi. Coconut milk infused and laced ( Shrimp Coconut Milk ) Indian coconut stew. In fact, sodhi is the branching of  Masak Lemak ( Vegetarian Malay Spinach Coconut Stew ), or vice-versa or whichever. Sodhi is definitely a popularity amongst the Indians and without a doubt, in my house as well. Sodhi is usually drenched over rice, and eaten alongside side dishes. Trust me, nothing like sodhi soaking or flooding up your rice and then, using your hands for mushy-mushy diving inside eating style. Sodhi. Like, every once a week in my house. In other words, a regularity and it is a dish that can be put up effortlessly. Needless to say, easy cooking and mind you, there are other variances of sodhi too, which I have already shared before ( Malu Kirata , Kiri Hodi , Prawn Sodhi & Cabbage Sodhi ). This latest sodhi? Basically, the humble, basic simplicity, but why a Malaysian Sodhi? Well, Cooked by this “The Crazy Lover” who is a typical, true and true Malaysian, and cooked in her, most o

Mochakottai Karuvadu Kulumbu (Field Beans Salted Fish Curry)

Look at this earthen pot and in it thick, salty, spicy and vibrantly exciting to our palates and eyes  Mochakottai Karuvadu Kulumbu (Field Beans Salted Fish Curry). Like immediately can trigger our hunger throne right? I know. I am definitely a big fan of this Indian style salted fish curry and salted fish on the whole by itself ( Spicy Ikan Bilis Potato , Sambal Tumis Ikan Bilis  &  Sambal Kentang Ikan Asin ), can drive me crazy because I so love saltiness. In fact, every day can be a salted fish meal day for me ( Salted Fish Pickle , Bean Sprouts Salted Fish  & Steamed Pork Salted Fish ). But, I think we all know it? Too much of saltiness and salt can ruin our health? Of course. Then again, there is such a thing as every now and then saltiness as our best friend? How do make this salted fish curry? Nothing much, no major confusing cooking matter ( Salted Fish Bone Curry ). My recipes as always will never cause you to struggle in the kitchen. Ingredients listed below

Restoran Orkid Thai - Section 9, Shah Alam

By the third day, Iphone 7 started showing its dark side. Really a terrifying-horrible shocking discovery, it kept rebooting every now and then for no apparent reason. Obviously, I couldn’t believe my eyes. Duh! Its a brand new phone I paid from  my savings ( Da De Bak Kut Teh Subang Jaya ), never ever have I encountered such a problem with my previous faithfully yours 6 year old Iphone 5. Absolutely heart wracking, I really couldn’t find the time ( Karaikudi Chicken Curry & Fikcles Cafe Taman Tun ) to rush to the service centre amidst the busyness of getting ready for the family wedding and another travel venture ( Oats Fried Prawn s ). Keeping my fingers crossed, hoping it’s just a minor teething problem, I went ahead with shopping nearby Plaza Shah Alam and Plaza Masalam. Accompanied by my niece, we bought a couple of things and then of course, naturally, shopping is more or less regarded as synonymous with hunger throne.
