Arroz Con Leche Dessert with Almonds and Raisins

Posted 2016-02-15 by finyfollow

I have a Spanish friend who re-named this recipe from what I originally had it. They eat it for breakfast over there.

I ate it with thickened cream, making it more decadent!

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 40 minutes
Makes: 6 servings

Ingredients
2½ cups water
1 cup long grain white rice
1 cinnamon stick
1 can evaporated milk
1 can condensed milk
1 cup full cream milk
¾ cup raisins
½ cup flaked almonds
Lemon zest

Method
  • Rinse the rice thoroughly under cold water until the water runs clear.

  • Put the rice, water, lemon zest, and cinnamon stick in a medium saucepan. On a medium - high heat, bring to the boil and cook until the rice is almost tender (about 12 minutes). I always turn off the flame a few minutes before the rice is ready as it goes on soaking liquid up for some time.

  • Ensure that it does not boil dry after about 8 minutes, and add more water if needed.

  • Discard the cinnamon and add the evaporated milk to the rice. Stir and add the sweetened condensed milk and the full fat milk.

  • Cook this over a medium heat until the mixture starts to boil.


  • Reduce the heat to low and cook, uncovered, and stirring continuously, until the mixture thickens - this took me about 15 minutes.
  • It does not need to be real thick as it thicken in the fridge


  • Add the raisins and almonds, and stir.


  • Put the pudding into a large serving bowl and dust with cinnamon.

  • This is a great dessert as it can be made a day or even two days ahead - as long as you cover it in the fridge.


  • If you want it not quite as sweet, do not put the whole tin of condensed milk in.

  • The second night I put some Pomegranate syrup over it, and this was also lovely.
