Roz Ma'aamar

Roz Ma'aamar is an Egyptian Rice dish thats cooked in the oven rather than the stove top. Its creamy because of the milk and can be eaten savoury or sweet. My Family likes it with sugar however some people add salt and pepper. This is really delicious way of cooking rice and looks wonderful on the tablespread.

2 and 1/2 cups of short grain rice
6 cups of milk
1/2 cup of whipping cream
1/2 cup of sugar

Place washed rice in baking dish. Pour in Milk and whipping cream and add sugar. Mix thouroughly then place in 200 degree oven. Mix the rice once you see a crust has formed, keep mixing every time you see a crust forms until all the milk has absorbed and rice is soft. You will be left with a rice pudding texture and a golden top. We served it with some Liver schnitzel but you can serve with peas and carrot stew or on its own with a dollop of cream.
