What do you do when you have left over rice that you cooked for dinner?
I turn the left over rice to breakfast porridge. There is a lot of things one can do with leftover rice. Make fried rice, tomato rice, lemon rice are some the most common dishes we would have tried until now. But what if you could use the left over rice to make a quick, light and filling breakfast dish? Sounds perfect isn’t it? Your morning meal can be a breeze with this spiced rice breakfast porridge recipe. This is a brainless recipe, which is just perfect for those busy mornings. All you need is some leftover cooked rice, fruits of your choice, nuts, milk and honey. Spice it up with cinnamon powder, nutmeg powder, ginger powder.
The spices used in the porridge are perfect to warm your body during cold winter days. We usually make breakfast porridge with oats.
