In this version we are using water, some people like to substitute the water for coconut milk, it gives this dessert a different taste and I love both verstions.

Ready in: 60 Min | Serves: 4-6  | Complexity: Easy
  • 2 cups White Rice
  • 1 can evaporated Milk
  • 2 1/2 cups of sugar
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 5 cloves
  • 1/2 cup seedless raisins

Rice Pudding (Arroz con Dulce) Ingredients
  1. Soak rice in 2 cups of water for a min of 30 minutes
  2. Meanwhile in 1 cup of water bring to a boil cinnamon & cloves
  3. Pour remaining water (2 cups) in large pot (Teflon) and bring to a boil,
  4. add cinnamon mix water (use colander to avoid the sticks and cloves - disregard) and salt
  5. drain rice and discard this water
  6. mix rice into boiling water, stir occasionally to avoid sticking
  7. reduce water by 80%, make sure the rice is as tender as you would like it (it will not soften more after this point)
  8. add all remaining ingredients.
  9. stir occasionally until it's reach the consistency of a pudding. (Varies by taste)
  10. Serve and garnish with powder cinnamon or a cherry on top.
And that is how you make rice pudding (Arroz con dulce), some like a small portion as a snack or dessert, others prefer to have a large plate and have it for breakfast or dinner.

I love rice pudding and this recipe looks like a good one. I'll have to try it out. It looks really easy to make and I like the cinnamon and cloves in it. Thanks for the recipe.

I haven't made rice pudding in ages. My mother made it all the time when I was a kid & always added raisins. :-)
