I was looking for something different to make for breakfast and was also watching out for "attractive" ways to use up my Brown Rice. I came across this recipe and modified it a bit to suit my palate. So, here's what I did. I had a feeling this would taste good and it really did :)
- I cooked brown rice with milk and water (1 cup rice, 1 cup milk, 1.5 cups water). Remember, how delicious Ven Pongal tastes when you cook rice in milk? I had pre-soaked brown rice in water, as usual for 2 hours.
- Then, I melted butter (~2 tsp)on a pan and added chopped apple pieces (from 2 apples) and allowed them to soften a bit.
- Drizzled honey over the apples (as a healthy alternative to sugar) and then tossed the rice and apples together.
- Took a cereal bowl, added some fresh cold milk and added this rice and apple mixture. That's it :)

Let me warn you, this is not my typical kinda food but it was realllly awesome! You can call it whatever you want - porridge, cereals... what's in a name, after all ? :) I personally think, this won't go well if you use normal white rice. The nutty texture of brown rice, the caramelized apples and sweetness of honey were just a perfect combination! I was soo full until after 1 in the afternoon that day and felt happy about not succumbing to another cup of tea at 10:30 am :)
