Directions

First put the water, rice, and cinnamon stick in a medium-sized saucepan set over medium-high heat.

Then bring to a boil, uncovered, and cook until the rice is soft for about 20 minutes. Strain out the liquid, discard the cinnamon, and reserve the rice.

Return the rice to the saucepan and stir in the evaporated milk, condensed milk, and whole milk. Continue to cook over medium-high heat until the mixture comes to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and cook uncovered until the mixture is thick, for about 20 minutes.

Then add in the raisins and stir well. Finally, transfer the pudding to a serving bowl and dust the top of the pudding with ground cinnamon.
