0.5 lb ripe pumpkin without the seeds and peel
2 cup rice or millet
3 cup milk
1-2 tbsp butter (optional)
1 tbsp sugar and 1 tbsp ground nuts per serving (optional)
Raisins and dried apricots pieces on taste
Soak raisins and apricots pieces.
Boil rice or millets in ¾ gallon lightly salt water until half-readiness, then drain the grain, and put into a saucepan. Pour milk over the grain (the milk has to cover the grain). Grate the pumpkin, put it into the saucepan, mix well with grain and milk, and bring to boil.
Boil for about 25 minutes at low heating, stirring occasionally.
(Add the raisins and apricot pieces after the first 15 minutes.)
Add 1-2 tbsp butter, and let to boil for one more minute.
Serve hot, sprinkle with ground nuts and sugar.
