I've actually just done this. Really. It was fascinating. The hounds loved it too.
Have you ever made rice pudding with tomato in?
I was just cooking up last nights leftovers,
For the dogs' breakfast,
Which included some basmati rice and curry.
I added milk, then more milk, then even more,
And the rice swelled and swelled,
And kept on swelling.
I added even more milk, and it kept on going.
I've now trebled the volume, and the curry has vanished,
Apart from the the odd bit of tomato peel.
I tasted it,
And its the best rice pudding I've ever made.
I checked the packet, its not supposed to be pudding rice,
But there's nothing wrong with the results.
Though with a slight hint of turmeric.
I'll not be mean though, I didn't make it for me.
Maybe I'll try a spoonful, then the hounds get the rest.
And they have such big brown eyes.
