Step by Step Method

Step 1

Bring uncooked rice, 1/2 cup water, 4 cups milk, evaporated milk, vanilla extract, cinnamon and nutmeg to a boil in a medium saucepan over high heat. Stir occasionally to avoid scorching. Let boil for 5 minutes.

Step 2

Add sweetened condensed milk and simmer over low heat.

Step 3

Stir in two cups milk in small portions. Milk should barely simmer with bubbles breaking only outside edge of the surface.

Step 4

Stir until mixture thickens.

Step 5

Add raisins and cook for 10 more minutes. Serve chilled or at room temperature.

Step 6

Garnish with a dusting of ground cinnamon

I found this recipe easy to make and resulted in a nice and creamy pudding. We did enjoy it, but found the nutmeg to overwhelm the dish. Next time, I will reduce the nutmeg. Thank you Linky for sharing. Made it for Pick Me Tag.

This took a while to make, butthead results are delicious. The condensed milk adds a caramel flavor and color to the rice. I used dried cranberries instead of the raisins because my children don't like them, and they worked very nicely. Thanks! Made for CQ '17.
