Sweet Rice with Apples, Raisins, and Sour Cream

This dish I learned many years ago from Savta Rivka. It is a tasty and filling dish, perfect for a dairy meal.

It’s a great solution if you have left-over cooked white rice. The amounts don’t matter – use as much rice as you want, and as many apples and raisins as you like.

This is a wonderful comfort food!


  • cooked white rice
  • peeled apples cut into cubes
  • raisins, dark or light
  • sugar, to taste
  • 1-2 eggs (depending on the amount of rice, apples, etc.).
  • sour cream
  • a touch of cinnamon
  • butter for frying


  1. Peel and cube as many apples as you like, depending on the amount of cooked rice you are using.
  2. In non-stick frying pan, put some butter, and add the peeled and cubed apples, the raisins, and some sugar. Heat for a few minutes.
  3. Add the cooked rice, and mix with the apples, raisins and sugar in the pan.
  4. Cook on a very low flame for about 15 minutes, adding some butter if needed. Pan should be covered.
  5. Mix in 1-2 eggs, mixing until well incorporated. Continue cooking for another 10-15 minutes, on a small flame. The applesshould be soft by now.
  6. Add a few spoonfuls of sour cream and mix. Cook for another few minutes.
  7. Serve together with some extra sour cream if desired.
