Rice Pudding Recipe "Dominican Style"

(Arroz Con Leche Dominicano)


This delicious dominican rice pudding recipe or arroz con leche dominicano is a traditional food in my Dominican Republic. And, of course, I had to publish it here in my dominican food website to share it with you.

I learned how to make this recipe from Mami. She cooks a yummy arroz con leche and now I cook it too for my Kiara and Josesito, they love it. This dessert is really easy to prepare and I'm sure you'll learn pretty fast.

Enjoy my dominican rice pudding recipe!



  • 1/2 lb long grain white rice
  • 1 1/2 cup water
  • 8 cups 2% low fat milk (you can use only evaporated milk instead or mix it half and half)
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 lemon peel
  • Ground cinnamon



To prepare this arroz con leche recipe, clean the rice, wash it and leave it in water for half an hour, then drain it. Put the 1 1/2 cup water in a cast aluminium caldero or a stainless steal pot on medium heat. When the water starts to boil, add the rice, stirring constantly to prevent sticking. When the water consumes, pour the milk slowly and add the cinnamon stick. Stir occasionally.

When the rice is tender, add the sugar, salt and the lemon peel. Cook on medium low heat for 15 to 20 minutes more (it depends on how thick you like the pudding). Serve your rice pudding and sprinkle some ground cinnamon to decorate. The cinnamon add a delicious taste.

You can enjoy this dominican rice pudding recipe just after serving, but I love it chilled.
