Peruvian Arroz Zambito with Clásico
Arroz Zambito is a Peruvian dessert that translates into "dark rice pudding". Darker than regular creamy rice puddings, the color comes from chancaca, a dark, sweet natural sugar used in many Peruvian desserts. This dessert is made extra delicious with a hint of coffee, coconut and raisins.

SOAK rice in water for 20 minutes; drain.
COMBINE milk, cinnamon stick, anise seeds, cloves and soaked rice in a large saucepan. Heat over medium heat just until gently boiling. Reduce heat to low; cook, stirring frequently to prevent rice from sticking to the bottom of the pan, for 12 minutes. Discard cinnamon stick and cloves.
ADD evaporated milk, ½ cup coconut, raisins and chancaca (or piloncillo or dark brown sugar); heat over medium-low heat, uncovered, stirring frequently, for about 10 minutes or until chancaca is dissolved. Add coffee granules; stir.
REMOVE from heat; stir in butter and vanilla extract.
COOL until mixture thickens.
SERVE garnished with remaining ¼ cup coconut and chopped nuts.
-Omit coffee for a kid-friendly version.
-Serve with chopped figs or dates for a heartier version.
