Arroz con Leche – Rice Pudding

I learned this Arroz con Leche {rice pudding} recipe when I was like 13 years old by accident trying to make something else. I really haven’t gone through other Rice Pudding recipes so couldn’t tell if it is the original recipe or not. But this one has been a total success in my family since I first made it. My dad is the first one to ask me to make it every holiday and even many friends ask me to make it when they are visiting!

As soon as I came to Oman, my dad and my little brother asked me to make rice pudding and I thought it would be nice to share it with you as well!.

The recipe is very simple.

Let’s make this delicious Rice Pudding

  • In a big pot stir the rice, sugar, cinnamon sticks, milk and water and mix everything with a wooden spoon. Bring to a simmer over low heat and leave it for around 2 hours mixing every now and then.
  • It should get thick and the rice very soft. Then it will be ready.
  • Before putting it away stir the condensed milk and mix.
  • Put it away and wait until it’s cool and put it on a glass bowl that you can put in the fridge.
  • It’s ready to eat. I usually wait until the next day to eat it because it tastes better. When serving, add some powdered cinnamon and it’s good to go!
  • This tastes so good. I know that people change some things depending on the country. For example in Spain they add orange peel, in Venezuela, they add some cloves, and so on. But I don’t like any of them so I make it simple!.
