1. basmati rice with raisins, butter, sugar and a little milk
I was probably close to 16 years old when I found out that rice wasn't just a breakfast food that my Mam-ma made. It seemed like she boiled it for 3 or 4 hours but I was probably just impatient - then she'd let me add all the butter and sugar that I wanted. Because that's what grandma's do.
