Time to make something extraordinary! I introduce you my rice pudding! Rice pudding with strawberry and mango is amazing! I want everyone to enjoy Asian fruits not in regular ways, in my own way of cooking based on the nutrition of fruits.
Hello my beloved readers!
On a wonderful Tuesday morning, when I finally had some time off from work, I decided to do something fun. I was sitting in the kitchen, thinking about my passion in Asian fruits and how to let others appreciate these tropical fruits as much as I can. Then, I finally realized, it’s my time messing around in the kitchen with those Asian fruits!
No, I’m just kidding.
There are many reasons why I want to cook my own way. First off, I’m still a student, so I can’t afford any luxurious and complicated meal in any fancy restaurant all the time. Secondly, I prefer fast and simple cooking as I easily get hungry (I know most of you may feel me here! The office job makes it even worse!), so going out seems like a difficult “task” for me too. Last but not least, I love Asian fruits, so why not cooking it with my own meal?
That’s why I decided to start this blog.
And my first cooking recipe will be rice pudding with mango and strawberry.
Rice has been the most popular ingredient in any Asian home meals. I’m not the exception. This time, I want to cook it with meal to make it softer and stickier (you know, like the texture of sticky rice, but it will be more expensive to buy.) It is believed to be among the healthy grain, while mango and strawberry surely gives you a lot of necessary nutrition for your day. You can check out the benefits of mango and the benefits of strawberry in my other articles.
Okay, let’s get into the cooking time.
What you need:
1 cup of cooked rice
1 cup of milk (any kind up to your preferences)
1 cup of diced mango & strawberry (or 1 mango and 4-5 large-sized strawberries)
1 tbsp olive oil (or any kind of butter)
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp lime
Chocolate powder (Optional)
Cook now, shall we?
Step 1: Pour milk into the pot of cooked rice and simmer it on low medium heat in 15 minutes or until the mixture gets thicker. You should stir it frequently and not let it boil or you’ll burn the whole pot (I experienced it, so I know!)
Step 2: In a pan, heat your oil or butter on medium high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the prepared mango and strawberry into the pan. Add in your sugar, and lime. Mix them altogether, but it shouldn’t take too long here as the longer it takes, the more nutrition it may lose during cooking.
Step 3: Let both cool down until warm or room temperature and it’s ready to serve.
Step 4: This is the funny part. After finished cooking, I didn’t know what to serve my precious food in. So, I grabbed a glass and gently make layers of rice, and then the mixture of mango and strawberry. And it actually looked better than I thought. Be creative in decorating your food!
This is my first fun cooking blog. I hope you enjoy it and follow me on my other “cooking show”
