Scottish Porrige

Postby David and Bui » Sat May 12, 2012 12:21 am

Friends,

This sentence was sent to day from Thai-Flashcards:

"ข้าวต้มเป็นที่นิยมในประเทศสก็อตแลนด์"

Is it true that Scottish "porridge" is made from rice?

Thanks.

It used to be made of oats, as Samuel Johnson pointed out in the 1700s:

oats: "A grain, which in England is generally given to horses, but in Scotland supports the people."


Perhaps they are referring to the dessert 'rice pudding'?

There is a rice porridge in Greece, known as rizogalo, (rizo=rice, galo=milk), made of rice boiled in goat or sheep milk and served sprinkled with cinnamon.

That says, Boiled rice is a thing liked in Scotland.
To some people I suppose ข้าวต้ม is a one-dish breakfast synonymous with porridge, so is acceptable in Scotland.

Maybe ข้าว could be understood in a more generic sense of cereal . Look at ข้าวโอ๊ต meaning oat or ข้าวสาลี meaning wheat . Then, indeed, Scottish porridge is a kind of ข้าวต้ม or more precisely ข้าวโอ๊ตต้ม or boiled oat... Just an idea that occurred to me

Cheerio !
