arroz con dulce (coconut rice pudding)


Rice Pudding, just the thought of a comforting dish of Rice Pudding makes me smile, I think it is one of my favorite non chocolate desserts. I love to eat it any time, breakfast, as a snack or a dish before bed...lots of cinnamon too!

Serving size: ½ cup

INGREDIENTS
2 cups short grain rice soaked overnight
4 cups coconut milk + ¾ coconut milk (reserved for the end)
1½ tsp salt
3 cinnamon sticks
¼ tsp of ginger
6 whole cloves
Pinch of nutmeg-optional
1½ cups sugar
½ cup raisins

INSTRUCTIONS
Soak in a generous amount of water overnight.

The day of preparation combine 4 cups of coconut milk, salt, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and nutmeg in a medium size nonstick pot. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to moderate, cover and simmer for 15 minutes.

Drain rice thoroughly and add to pot. Mix and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook until rice is almost dry, stirring occasionally.

Add the sugar and raisins, stir until well combined and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook for another 15 minutes frequently stirring to keep from sticking to the bottom.

Add reserved ¾ cup coconut milk and stir. Turn heat to moderate until it comes to a slow boil. Cook for about 20 minutes, or until rice becomes thick like a pudding. Stirring rice occasionally and scrape bottom of pot making sure it doesn't stick.

Remove spices. Spoon rice into a flat serving platter. Allow to cool at room temperature before serving. Store covered in the refrigerator.
