Risengrød is a rice porrige, risalamande is a pudding dessert made with risengrød, whipped cream and almond slivers. It's eaten as part of a game played during Christmas and new years. Whoever can find the whole almond in their pudding wins a prize, traditionally a marzipan pig

grød = gruel; gruel is an old word for porridge.

It's "riz au lait" in french :p (rice with milk)

Risengrød is not the same as rise pudding. Google "Risbudding"
