Ladle and king size spoon

The object with a long handle used especially for serving soup is called ladle, but there is an object like a king-size spoon that we use to put rice from a large container onto our plate; what is it called?

Do you use this utensil to serve other types of food in addition to rice? Do you have a link to a picture? This might help us identify an appropriate name for it.

If this utensil has its own name in your language that is different than the names of other types of serving utensils, then it may not have its own name in English. Depending on its shape we might call it a "serving spoon", a "rice server", a "rice scoop", a "rice ladle", or something else.
