- 1 cup cooked white rice
- 2 cups milk
- 1/4 cup white sugar (adjust to taste)
- 2 cups of your favorite fruit (currants, raspberries, cherries, etc.)
- 3 egg whites
- 2 tablespoons white sugar for the egg white mixture

1. In a medium-sized saucepan, combine the cooked white rice and milk. Bring the mixture to a gentle boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.
2. Reduce the heat to low and simmer the rice mixture for approximately 20 minutes, or until the rice becomes very soft and the mixture thickens. Stir occasionally to ensure even cooking.
3. Sweeten the rice mixture with white sugar, adjusting the amount to suit your taste preferences. Stir well to incorporate the sugar and continue cooking for an additional 5 minutes.
4. Remove the rice mixture from heat and allow it to cool to room temperature.
5. Meanwhile, prepare your desired fruit filling. If using fresh fruits such as raspberries or cherries, wash and remove any stems or pits. If using fruit like currants, you can use them as they are.
6. Stew the fruit in a small saucepan with a bit of water and sweeten with sugar to taste. Cook until the fruit has softened slightly and the flavors have melded together. Allow the fruit to cool.
7. Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C) and lightly grease a tart dish.
8. Once the rice mixture has cooled, transfer it to the greased tart dish. Spread it evenly across the bottom and up the sides of the dish, creating a rice shell for your fruit filling.
9. Pour the cooled fruit filling into the rice shell, spreading it evenly over the rice.
10. In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until they form stiff peaks. Gradually add the white sugar while continuing to beat the egg whites until the mixture becomes glossy.
11. Spoon the beaten egg whites over the fruit filling, creating a fluffy layer on top.
12. Place the tart dish in the preheated oven and bake for about 30 minutes or until the top is lightly golden.
13. Once baked, remove the rice fruit tart from the oven and allow it to cool before serving.
