  • 3 pastry sheets of flour
  • 1 L of milk
  • 3 small cups of rice
  • 1 egg
  • 1 spoon of butter
  • Some oil
  • ½ teacup of sugar
  • a pinch of salt
  • a bit of cinnamon


In hot water, we wash the rice and rub it with the palms of our hands. We prepare the large baking pan for cooking by oiling it and laying the three pastry sheets. We boil the milk and when it inflates we add the rice, sugar and little salt and stir it constantly until it is thickened and then turn off the heat. We put butter and half of the egg in (after having scrambled and stirred it) and mix them well while covering them with a towel for a while in order to inflate. Next, we pour this mix in the large baking pan and stretch it throughout the pan and spray the rest of the egg on top of these and also sprinkle some cinnamon. We bake it in the oven in a medium heat of approximately 130 degrees for 45 minutes.
