Top Review by Marielis R.

Honestly, I am so shocked at how easy this was to prepare. The only tedious task is waiting for the rice to soak in water for a little over 3 hours. Lol! I love the fact that you don't have to add sugar or a ton of cinnamon for taste and flavor because of the condensed (sweetened) milk. The only 3 things that I dis different was, I added about 3/4 cup more of raisins, about 5 more spice cloves, and a little over a cup more of water when it was boiling with water. Other than that, it turned out extremely delicious!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. First it is recommended that you soak the rice in water for at least 3 hours before cooking so that it can soften up. After it has been soaking for a bit remove the water and begin to cook it.
  2. In a heavy saucepan over med heat, bring the rice and water to a boil.
  3. Lower the heat to simmer (LOW), add the cloves and cinnamon stick. Stir.
  4. Let this cook (uncovered) until the water has evaporated ( 8 - 15 minutes ).
  5. Add the remaining ingredients (except the pinch of cinnamon), stir gently once, and again let simmer (uncovered) until all liquid has evaporated.
  6. Transfer into a casserole or serving dish, garnish with the pinch of cinnamon (sprinkle on top) and refrigerate.
  7. Keep refrigerated. May be served at room temperature.
