Potato Pudding

4 or 6 potatoes, according to size. 1 onion or shalot. 1 gill of milk. 2 hard boiled eggs. 1 teaspoon salt. 1 teaspoon mixed sweet herbs. Paste for crust No. 207.

Boil the potatoes, onion and egg separately for fifteen minutes, then slice and mix well together, sprinkling in the salt and herbs. Line a middling sized pudding basin with paste, fill with the mixture, pour in the milk, cover with paste, wetting round the edges so that they join well, tie a cloth over, plunge it into a large saucepan half full of boiling water, and boil rather fast for three and a half hours.

Note.--A vegetable sauce should be served with the pudding.

Boiled Rice

For Curries, etc.

About 12 ounces of rice. A pinch of salt. Water.

Place the rice in a saucepan, cover with cold water and bring to the boil, then strain away the water and return the rice to the saucepan, add fresh cold water and the salt, and boil for fifteen minutes, then strain it through a colander again.

Stand the colander containing the rice on a plate, cover it with a cloth and place in a warm (not hot) oven for two hours. Stir the rice occasionally with a fork.
