Making Ghana’s rice water porridge 5 5 1

My generation had the privilege of having our rice water with the ubiquitous evaporated milk with plenty of sugar which gave rice water a very creamy and rich flavour.

Ghana's rice water is somewhat unique in its preparation. The rice, regardless of which variety is used, is often mushed a little by pressing the grains against the sides of the pot to break them down.
