CUBAN-STYLE RICE PUDDING - ARROZ CON LECHE
There is also a children's game associated w/this recipe. Children get in a circle and join hands. One child is in the circle. At the end of the song, "Arroz con Leche" the child chooses someone else to enter the circle.
"Arroz con leche se quiere casar con una viudita de la capital, Rin, ran. Que sepa coser, que sepa bordar, que ponga la aguja en su canevá. Rin, ran.Me gust la leche, me gusta el café, pero más me gustan los ojos de Ud." There are other verses too.
- 1 c
- valencia type rice (short-grained only)
- 4 c
- milk (can use 2 %)
- 2 c
- sugar (can use splenda or truvia)
- 1 stick
- ground cinnamon to garnish servings
- 3 or 4 Tbsp
- condensed milk (optional)
Add the condensed milk(optional) When the pudding coats the spoon you've used to stir it with, the pudding is ready to pour into individual bowls or serving bowls. Sprinkle w/ cinnamon. Can be served hot(warm so you don't burn your tongue) or cold. I have a cousin who loved to eat this w/pieces of cream cheese on the side.. It's good that way too, but it does add calories.
