Sweet Rice, an Indian Cuisine, tastes a lot like ice cream. This sweet milky dessert acts as a "pepper neutralizer" after eating hot and spicy dishes.
Recipe type: Desserts
Cuisine: East Indian
Serves: 12
  • 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
  1. Bring water to a boil over a medium flame. Add cinnamon sticks. Continue to boil for about 2 minutes
  2. 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.)
  3. 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.
  4. Stir in raisins and cherries. Let cool for 15 minutes before serving or alternatively serve cold.
