  • ¼ cup rice
  • 10 cups whole milk
  • 2 ½ cups sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • ¼ cup raisins optional


  • Place the rice with some water in a bowl and set aside for 2 days. Rinse and drain the rice.
  • Place the soaked rice in a food processor or blender with 1 cup of whole milk.
  • In a medium pot, place the rice and milk mixture, the rest of milk, sugar and salt and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce the heat to medium-low, stirring often with a wooden spoon for about 3 hours or until the color changes to caramel and the mixture is thick as a pudding. Add the raisins and let it cool.
  • Pour into a glass container and cover. Refrigerate up to a week.
