Ingredients

1 cup long-grain white rice

2 cinnamon sticks

1 tablespoon lemon zest

3 whole cloves

4 cups water

1 egg

3 cups whole milk

1 (12-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup raisins, optional

Directions

  1. Soak the rice, cinnamon sticks, lemon zest and whole cloves in the water in a heavy saucepan for 1 hour.
  2. After soaking, bring the rice mixture to a boil on high heat, uncovered. When it starts to boil (about 5 minutes), lower the heat to medium and cook for 10 to 12 more minutes or until water is almost evaporated.
  3. While rice is cooking, beat the egg in a bowl. Add the milk and stir well to mix. Add the egg mixture, vanilla extract and condensed milk to the rice and cook over medium-low heat, stirring carefully, until it thickens slightly or until desired consistency, about 25 to 35 minutes.
  4. Let cool uncovered.
  5. Note: be aware that as the rice cools it thickens. The finished product will be thinner than traditional rice pudding.
