How to Make Creamy Milk Rice Easy

Rice Pudding with Milk

  1. In a pot or casserole, put the milk, the rice, the citrus peels and the cinnamon stick. We heat over medium heat while we do not stop stirring
  2. When it is hot, but does not come to a boil, as the milk after 95-100ºC burns and takes on a very unpleasant aftertaste, let it cook. We stir every five minutes, to ensure that the rice pudding does not stick and to release the starch. This way it will be more creamy. Remember that it should not come to a boil with strong spurts at any time
  3. After about 45 minutes, when the grain is almost done – remember to stir every 5 minutes – add the sugar. Let cook for 10 more minutes, until the rice is now very soft.
  4. We turn off the heat and add the butter. We remove the shells and the cinnamon stick and mix well. We let out a temper. Keep mixing from time to time while you let it warm so that no crust appears on the surface
  5. When something has tempered, we put the rice pudding in individual bowls. You can decorate with a piece of the cinnamon stick that you used to infuse. Sprinkle some ground cinnamon on top for the final touch.
