Any leftovers can be used to make Ris a la Malta, a dessert for the Christmas table. Just add whipped heavy cream and chopped up orange slices. Use a glass Pyrex measuring cup with ML when making this.
This is what you will need for 10 servings or 2.5L porridge:
3 tablespoons Butter
2 teaspoons Salt
4 Cinnamon sticks
2. Add the lower amount of the milk and turn down the heat to low, barely boiling. Stir now and then to prevent the porridge from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
3. Add more milk if it gets too thick. Simmer the porridge for approx. 1 1/2 hours or until the rice is soft.
A fun old tradition is to add one blanched almond to the porridge. The story goes that who ever gets the almond is the next to get married!
Serve with milk, sugar and ground cinnamon.
