What You Need:

Cook The Rice


Add water, rice, 1 cinnamon stick, and salt into a pot. Cover the pot and bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and let it simmer, covered, for 15 minutes.

Add The Milks


Add the milk, sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk, and the other cinnamon stick into the pot.

Thicken the Mixture


Cover again and cook on a low heat for another 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Keep stirring so that the milk does not burn on the bottom of the pot.


Remove the lid and cook for another 10-15 minutes until the desired consistency is reached. Continue stirring so that the milk does not burn.


There shouldn’t be much extra water left over after the first 15 minutes of cooking the rice. Tilt the pan to make sure that most of the water is absorbed. There should only be a few tablespoons of water left if there is any at all. If there is more than this, cover the rice again and cook for a few more minutes.


If there is still a little bit of extra water in the rice, do not drain it before adding the milk.

Don’t skip the resting step at the end of the recipe! It is important for the texture of the dish.


This recipe is delicious on its own, but adding more toppings to it will just take it up to a whole other level. Here are some great topping ideas for you to try out: – Ground cinnamon – Nutmeg – Raisins – Honey
