7 cups water
1 cup long-grain white rice
One 4-inch cinnamon stick
One 12-ounce can evaporated milk
One 14-ounce can condensed milk
1 cup whole milk
3/4 cup golden raisins
Ground cinnamon, for dusting
Strawberry Sauce Ingredients :
1 pint fresh strawberries
1/3 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Directions for the rice :
Put the water, rice, and cinnamon stick in a medium-size heavy saucepan set over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, uncovered, and cook until the rice is tender, about 18 minutes. Strain out the liquid, discard the cinnamon and reserve the rice. Return the rice to the saucepan. Stir in the evaporated milk, condensed milk, and whole milk. Continue cooking over medium-high heat until the mixture comes to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and cook, uncovered, stirring constantly, until the mixture is thick, about 20 minutes. Add the raisins, and stir well. Transfer the pudding to a serving bowl. Dust the top of the pudding with ground cinnamon and serve.
Directions for the sauce:
Wash strawberries and remove the stems. Cut the large berries in half or roughly chop them.
Combine strawberries, sugar, and vanilla in a saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. The mixture will sizzle for a while, but then juice will begin to form. Continue stirring; mash a few strawberries with a wooden spoon or heat-proof spatula to help produce the syrup. Cook until sauce thickens, about 15 minutes.
Remove from heat. In a blender, puree about 1/3 of the sauce, then mix back into remaining topping.
To assemble your arroz con leches cup place the strawberry sauce at the bottom followed by your rice. Put a dash of cinnamon and your whipped cream. Then sprinkle more cinnamon and add berries, raspberries and cinnamon stick for decoration if you like:)
