Empress rice

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
½ cup Medium/short grain rice
3 cups Water
½ teaspoon Salt
2⅛ cup Hot milk
½ cup Sugar
1 each Envelope unflavored gelatin
¼ cup Cold water
¼ teaspoon Of vanilla
½ pint Whipping cream
\N \N Raspberry Sauce (See recipe)



Bring water and salt to a boil in a saucepan and cook the rice 5-6 minutes. Drain it in a strainer and rinse. Combine the hot milk and drained rice and cook gently 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. (Milk should reduce by half). When rice is tender (not before) add sugar and continue stirring until very tender, stirring now and then.

Meanwhile, sprinkle the gelatin over the cold water and allow to stand 10 minutes, or until water is absorbed and gelatin is soft.

Stir the softened gelatin into the hot rice mixture and stir until gelatin granules disappear. Put mixture in a cool bowl and add vanilla. Place bowl of rice over another bowl filled with ice and stir frequently until mixture feels thick and heavy like sour cream or honey. Immediately whip the cream in a cold bowl with cold beaters until stiff. Fold cream into rice until streaks disappear. SPoon mixture into an ungreased fluted mold. Rap once on the counter to remove air pockets. Cover and chill overnight. To unmold, loosen rim with a knife and dip mold about 30 seconds in bowl of hot water.

Invert on a platter. Repeat process if it doesn't come out on the first try. Chill, covered (a mixing bowl inverted over it is perfect) until serving time. Spoon sauce around dessert. You could also chill rice in a glass bowl. To serve, spoon into individual serving dishes and top with sauce. SUGGEST USING THE RASPBERRY SAUCE TO TOP WITH.
