Altered ingredient amounts. Turned out great, but I halved the amount of rice - rice doubles in size when it cooks people and 2 cups of cooked rice is way too much for 500 mLs of milk. I didn't stir it part way through cooking either - I just let it cook/set. I also didn't add sultanas - but that's just personal taste. - 26 Dec 2010


Altered ingredient amounts. Oh was this ever dry. I added an extra 225ml of milk, a little extra water when cooking the rice and still it was like eating a bowl of rice. I added a little extra sugar because I like it sweet. The flavour was good-the texture not good at all. - 21 Jul 2008


Good basic recipe, but you need to: (1) BAKE it only for 30 minutes [instead of an hour] OR you MUST USE another 225ml of milk because it was too dry. (2) I'd also put in 4 tablespoons more sugar only because I like it a bit sweeter and 3) I'd butter the baking dish, and maybe add a Tablespoon of butter to this recipe. Good, solid comfort food :=) !!! - 21 Jul 2008
