1 Cup(c)  rice

Bring 2 cups water to a boil with 1 teaspoon salt and 1 tablespoon butter. Add 1 cup rice, cover and simmer for 20 minutes, or until the rice is completely cooked and all of the liquid is absorbed. To make the dough: Blend the cooked rice together with the sugar, salt and nutmeg. Dissolve the baking powder in boiling water and blend it into the mixture. Now work in the eggs and the flour 1 cup at a time. Divide the mixture into 12 flat round cakes.
