Arroz Con Leche/Spanish Rice Pudding

Arroz con leche aka Spanish rice pudding is a traditional and very popular dessert quite often served in most of the Spanish's houses. This pudding sounds bit similar like Indian rice kheer eventhough the cooking process doesnt go as rice kheer. Arroz con leche is quite a rict desserr with a mild lemon and cinnamon flavour. This pudding can be served both warm or cold and obviously this pudding goes for an easy cooking method, you cant stop yourself with a single serving of this pudding,yep this rice pudding is quite addictive.

I tasted this arroz con leche few years back in a spanish friend's place, immediately i asked her to share the recipe, without any fail she gave me her mom's traditional arroz con leche recipe. Whenever we make Spanish foods at home, this arroz con leche will be served definitely for dessert and its one of our most favourite pudding.This is my third post for this week's blogging marathon as am cooking under the theme 'cooking with colours'.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing this 29th edition.Sending to Flavours of Spain guest hosted by me, an event by Nayna.
