    I love this recipe, especially with leftover jasmine or basmati rice. It lends itself so well to experimentation with flavour and toppings and it's something different than the usual breakfast things. I added freshly grated nutmeg to the pot and a dash of vanilla extract. Any fruit, nut or seed would work on top and I love how it's meatier and more filling than oatmeal. Next time I'm going to try it with a splash of rosewater and chopped pistachios, kiwi and strawberry slices on top for a Persian take. Or banana slices, walnuts and shaved dark chocolate on top for a banana-bread take.
