  • 1 cup white rice
  • 1 tin 395g condensed milk
  • 1 tin 410g /14.5 oz evaporated milk
  • 1 stick cinnamon
  • 4 dried cloves
  • ½ cup raisins
  • ¼ cup maraschino cherries quartered
  • 1 tsp. vanilla or mixed essence
  • 3 cups water or more if needed


  • Bring water to a boil over a medium flame. Add cinnamon sticks. Continue to boil for about 2 minutes
  • Wash and add rice. Boil until very soft and sticky. (Note: Add more water if necessary if the rice hasn't reached a soft consistency.)
  • Add evaporated milk, condensed milk and vanilla or mixed essence. Lower flame. Stir occasionally to prevent the rice from sticking. When mixture thickens and looks like a thick porridge, remove from heat.
  • Stir in raisins and cherries. Let cool for 15 minutes before serving or alternatively serve cold.
