• ¾ cup white rice
  • 2½ cups water
  • 1 each cinnamon stick – small piece
  • ¾ cup whole milk
  • ½ cup sweetened condensed milk
  • ¼ cup raisins
  • For garnish ground cinnamon


  • STEP 1
    Place water, rice and piece of cinnamon in a medium saucepan. Turn heat to high and bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer uncovered for about 20 minutes until rice is tender.
  • STEP 2
    While the rice is cooking, mix the whole milk with the sweetened condensed milk and stir well.
  • STEP 3
    The rice will be ready when all the water has evaporated and it has formed some holes over the surface.
  • STEP 4
    Remove pot from heat and pour the milk mixture into the rice and stir. Mix in the raisins.
  • STEP 5
    Return saucepan to heat, cover, and keep cooking until it thickens. Stir occasionally to avoid sticking to the bottom.

  • STEP 7
    Serve in small cups and sprinkle with cinnamon.
