  1. This looks really yummy and I will try it this Christmas … but I have to admit, I cannot find any recipe this elaborate, or tasty, in Swedish. lol

    1. Thank you for your comment. I think there are a few Swedish recipes out there, but everyone is a bit different. I think every family that makes it has their own version and this is how I make it. I hope you liked it and happy new year!

  2. Whoops, sorry.. The link I shared for the recipe in Swedish doesn’t seem to work.. Anyway there are pins on Pinterest for the recipe in Swedish.. Just look for Ris a la Malta

    1. It seems like Denmark, Sweden and Norway all have their variations of this dish under different names (at least according to Wikipedia). The recipe describes how I usually prepare it. Thank you for taking an interest and best wishes for the holidays and new year!
