INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup short grain rice
  • 7 cup water
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 12 oz evaporated milk
  • 14 oz condensed milk
  • 3/4 cup raisins optional
  • ground cinnamon for dusting

Instructions

Combine rice, water, and cinnamon stick in sauce pan. Bring to a boil on medium-high, and cook uncovered until rice is tender, about 18 minutes.

Discard the cinnamon, strain out the water, and return the rice to the pan.

Add the whole, evaporated, and condensed milks to the rice.

Bring to a boil on medium-high, and cook uncovered until the mixture has thickened, about 20 minutes. Stir often to prevent rice from sticking to the bottom of the pan.

Turn off heat and stir in raisins.

Serve, topped with ground cinnamon for garnish.
