Baked rice is a traditional Maltese dish. When I learned how to make this from my mother, she reminisced how her mother taught her to make it. Two very strong women who own their kitchens and I would like to think I inherited that trait from them! From time to time, I will put my own touch on recipes I learn from my mother, however, this is one I won’t ever change. Thanks Nonna and Mom! Make this dish for someone special as it has been handed down to me from someone very, very special. Serve this with a salad and you can have a nice weeknight meal!
