  1. Place the rice into a food processor or blender, and process until coarse, but not pureed. Transfer to a saucepan, and stir in the milk, sugar and dates. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally until the dates are tender, about 20 minutes. Serve warm or cold.

This recipe tastes better warm than cold, but it is good either way. 15 dates are perhaps too many if you are using high quality, plump, large dates. Makes it almost too datey. An excellent Suhoor meal which has not left me hungry yet today and it's been 8 hours. So easy to prepare!

I love the taste of dates in this.

This is good, plenty sweet. Next time I will only use 2 T sugar and maybe only 10 dates, maybe add some nuts, and it will be great for breakfast. I thought it was a bit weird putting it in the blender, but it gave it more of a breakfast porridge texture that was okay. Next time I probably won't use the blender though. I liked it both warm and cold.
