How Rice Is Cooked in the East. Take rice washed with hot water and put it in a pot and with the rice put fat mutton, from the chest, the hind parts and from the waist, and the fat and the leg bones. Add water to cover it plus a little more and sufficient salt. Put it in the bread oven overnight and take it out the next morning. When it is all mushy, turn it onto a platter and dust it with cinnamon, spikenard, ginger and ground sugar. You can cook this at home with fresh milk and it is better and more delicious.
