+ Howevermuch rice you want to turn into pudding
+ raisins (not required, but I like ‘em. dried date bits might work nicely, too)
+ cinnamon/clove/other flavor you want to put in it
+ microwavable container (I just use the tupperware that the rice is in)
1. Put your rice in the microwavable container, however much rice you want to make into the rice pudding.
2. Pour the milk over the rice, kinda like your breakfast cereal. The milk should just barely seep around the top layer of rice.
3. Microwave for a few minutes, more for more rice, less for less rice. (I’m sorry this isn’t very specific, it really depends on the microwave and the amount of rice.) The milk will evaporate a little, and seep into the rice. You’re basically re-cooking the rice in the milk.
When your rice comes out of the microwave it WILL BE HOT, so be careful.
4. Mix in raisins/dried fruit and sugar (to taste). Let sit for a little while, so the raisins can absorb some of the milk, and so the rice can, too. A few minutes (<15) should work fine. If you’re preparing dinner, you can go do that and let the rice sit, it’ll be fine.
5. Microwave again, for a minute or two.
6. Add in spices and let sit until you’re too impatient to wait anymore and just eat it.
(Be careful not to eat it when it’s too hot. If you have a refrigerator, sticking it in there for a few minutes’ll help)
The rice pudding won’t be anything fancy, unless you’re more skilled than I am, but it’s edible and a little delicious.
