Posted in : Mexican on by : Daphne


1/4 kg rice (1/2 lb)250 ml water (1 cup)1 cinnamon stick, 4 cm (1 1/2 inches)1 piece lemon peel75 g sugar (2 1/2 oz)1/4 ts salt1 1/4 liters milk (5 cups)ground cinnamon


Put the rice, water, cinnamon stick, lemon peel, sugar and salt in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer on a low fire until the water is nearly absorbed, about 8 minutes. Then add the milk and continue cooking until the rice is very tender. There should be enough liquid left to give a creamy consistency to this dessert. Remove cinnamon and lemon rind. Serve dusted thickly with cinnamon. Serve hot or chilled.
