ARROZ CON LECHE COSTA RICAN STYLE ( RICE PUDDING )

This is a classic desert from my beloved Costa Rica, with some changes to give it a taste even more delicious.

INGREDIENTS

2 cups of long grain rice
5 cups of milk
1/3 cup sugar
3 cinnamon sticks
5 cloves
1 can condense milk
1 can evaporate milk
1 egg yolk
zest of one lemon
1 cup raisins
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon butter

DIRECTIONS

In a large saucepan over low heat put the rice, milk, cloves, cinnamon and lemon zest. Stir with a wooden spoon. Let it cook until the rice is ready in about 30 minutes. Move constantly to avoid sticking to the bottom of the pot. When the rice is almost dry, add butter, and three quarters of evaporated milk. Stirring constantly add the egg yolk with the remaining quarter of evaporated milk, sugar and condensed milk. Remember to move constantly. Finally raisins, move, leave Boil for three minutes and remove from heat. You can add coconut, ground cinnamon or grated cheese without salt.
