    Default Arroz con dulce

    Description: This is a delicious Puerto Rican dessert used especially during Christmas time. It is my favorite Christmas dish. If you enjoy rice pudding, you will certainly enjoy this one.
    Time: 1 hour
    Difficulty: Easy

    Ingredients:
    1. 1 cup of short grain rice
    2. 2 can (16 oz) coconut milk (not coconut cream)
    3. 1 small piece of fresh ginger root (about 11/2 to 2 inch)
    4. 6 cinnamon sticks
    5. 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
    6. 1 cup sugar
    7. 1/2 cup seedless raisins
    Preparation:
    1. Put 1 cup of uncooked short grain rice in water 2 hours ahead. The water should cover the rice. Rinse and drain after the 2 hours
    Instructions:
    1. Rinse the rice and put in a heavy bottom casserole (pot). Dilute the coconut milk with water until you get the equivalent of 6 cups. Set one cup of this mixture apart for later use and add the rest to the rice. Wash ginger and bang it a couple of times with something heavy to expose the inside (you don't have to peel it). Add the ginger, salt and the cinnamon sticks. Cook in high until it starts to boil and then turn to low and cook for 30 minutes. It should simmer. Do not move but watch closely. After this time, move it slowly, turning the rice on the bottom of the pot towards the pot. Add the reserved coconut milk, the sugar and the raisins and mix carefully. Cook in low another 15 minutes or so, until the coconut milk dries a bit and the rice looks creamy. You need to use your judgement here. When ready, remove the cinnamon sticks and put in a plate to cool. I use the cinnamon sticks to decorate the top. If you like, you can sprinkle powdered cinnamon on top after it cools. Keep refrigerated.

    Is a casserole the same as a pot? I think I mean a pot!

    Thanks. Sometimes my Spanish mixes with my English. In Spanish it's a "cacerola".
