I hope you all had a great Cinco de Mayo! I made Arroz con Dulce to take to the office and it was a huge hit. I've made it a few times now and this is truthfully the best rice pudding I've ever had!
Arroz con Dulce
3 C water
1 tsp salt
1 tsp whole cloves
1 Tblsp crushed fresh ginger
(1) 13.5 oz can of coconut milk
1 C regular, uncooked, short-grain rice
3/4 C sugar
1/2 C raisins
Add water, salt, cloves and ginger to a deep sauce pan, Bring to a boil, sieve through a colander to remove spices.
Bring water to a boil again. Add coconut milk, rice and sugar. Cook covered over medium-low heat for about 20 minutes. Add raisins. Cook uncovered until the rice has absorbed all of the water (about 20 minutes more).
Cooking times may vary.
