This porridge is a cherished family recipe passed down from my grandma.

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 1 Cup Cooked rice of any kind (jasmine, brown, red, wild)
  • 1/4 Cup Cooked rolled oats or barley
  • 400ml Coconut milk
  • 1/4 Cup Brown sugar
  • 6 Dates cut into small pieces
  • A handful of Raisins and goji berries
  • A small piece of Paw paw cut into small pieces


  1. Place cooked rice, oats or barley in a medium size saucepan. Add coconut milk and brown sugar.
  2. Stir over medium heat until sugar has dissolved and rice mixture has warmed through. About 3-5 minutes.
  3. Add fruits and stir to combine. Depending on your preference, continue to cook another 5 minutes and turn off heat; or simmer a little longer if you like it very soft.


A very traditional bowl of porridge we share early in the morning around the breakfast table. It gives us plenty of energy to get going especially on a cold winter's day.

  • Porridge is one of my favourite foods to have for breakfast on a cold morning. I have never had goji berries in my porridge before, sound like a nice addition.


  • I like the fruit added sounds really nice would like to try this I love sweet rice pudding


  • That is a different kind of porridge thanks


  • Make a great dessert or afternoon snack for winter. Many the times I am looking for something for the fuss nuts to eat and this seems like something they like. Also would be easy to puree for one who needs his food softened for a while.


  • oh my so yummy! Thank you for sharing this recipe!


  • It looks very nice! Perfect for winter indeed!!


  • Thanks for a delicious looking porridge recipe – love the fruits.


  • It sounds like a very hearty porridge and a great way to use up any leftover rice.


  • A very tasty porridge recipe,love the paw paw and goji berries in it! Thanks.

    • Thanks for your comment, mom.
      This recipe has been kept in the family, and brought to the breakfast table for as long as I can remember.
      You can reduce the brown sugar if the fruits are sweet enough for your taste buds.

      • Love sweet porridge and brown sugar is the best!

      • LOL – I’m the same, anything with brown sugar in it, I will glue to it :)

      • Yay! Glad you love it too! :)
