Rice is consumed by most European families at breakfast, tiffin, and dinner. It is eaten at breakfast with fried meat, fish, omelet, country captain, or some other curried dish, and, being invariably followed by toast and eggs, jams, fruit, &c., one /coonkee/, which contains about as much as an ordinary breakfast-cup, or say half a pound, will always be ample for four tolerably hearty consumers. There are two sizes of /coonkees/, large and small: reference is here made to the /small coonkee/, well filled. The quantity, however, of raw rice for a party of four should not exceed half a pound.
