Homemade Rice Pudding

Doesn't this picture just speak comfort food to you? My grandma use to make us what we called atole, translation rice pudding. We got it when we had tummy aches. She served it warm, but now I prefer it cold as a dessert.

Jasmine rice 1 cup
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup sweeten condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon lemon rind
1 teaspoon butter
1/8 teaspoon salt
4 sticks of cinnamon

In a rice pot cook 1 cup rice, 1 1/2 cups water,and lemon rind, and 1/8
teaspoon salt.

After rice is cooked. Add 4 cups of milk, vanilla, raisins,sweeten condensed milk, and 4 sticks of cinnamon to simmer on low heat with cover on for 1 hour. Rice will look dryer milk will thicken and evaporate. Serve either hot, or cold. Enjoy.
