Arroz con leche
  • 1/2 ltr milk
  • 75 gr rice
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 star anise
  • zest of 1/2 lime
  • 35 gr sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 eggyolk
  • ground cinnamon optional
  • Banana slices optional
  1. In a small saucepan bring the milk, the cinnamon stick, anis and limepeel to a soft boil. Add the rice and cook the rice until it is soft enough. My rice had 8 minutes regular cooking time, but I added maybe 5 minutes to that to give it a more soft consistency. Just make sure that the rice is still rice and not one mushy drab... :) Once you add the rice, also add a pinch of salt and the sugar to the milk. When the rice is the way you want it to be add one eggyolk. Make sure it is not boiling anymore or you will have bits of egg. It should thicken the liquid and give you a nice creamy texture. Once you let it cool it will get even thicker. You can eat it warm or cold. I ate mine lukewarm which worked perfectly for me.
  2. You can add banana to it (as I did above) and sprinkle the dessert with some ground cinnamon.
