How to Make Arroz Doce - Cinnamon Rice Pudding

Step-by-Step

  1. In a heavy saucepan, combine milk, water, lemon rind, cinnamon stick and salt; cover and bring to a boil. Stir in rice; reduce heat to medium-low and cook, uncovered for 35-40 minutes, or until almost tender, stirring often and scraping sides of pan.
