Swedish Rice Porridge

TYPE : Swedish
YIELD : 6 servings
CALORIES : 244 kcal
COOK TIME : 15 mins
TOTAL TIME : 4 hrs 15 mins


  • 1 cup (2.5 dl) round/short-grain rice, for example sushi or Arborio rice
  • 2 cups (5 dl) water
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 cups (7.5 dl) milk, or more as needed
  • 2 tbsp sugar (to taste)
  • 2 tbsp butter (optional)


  • Bring rice, water and salt to a boil, then simmer until most of the water has been absorbed.
  • Add milk, sugar and butter, then heat while stirring until it comes to a boil (or close to it).
  • Remove from heat and let it swell under lid for at least 3-4 hours or overnight. (You can also let it simmer until rice is soft for about 45 minutes, but it burns very easily.)
  • Stir and add more milk if needed, then reheat and serve with ground cinnamon, sugar and milk.
