Roz bil hleeb

Morocco’s simple yet delicious dessert

Roz bil hleeb (rice pudding)


1 cup rice (any size of cup)

2 cups of water (same cup used for rice)

2 cups of milk (may need 1 extra cup)

1 small piece of lemon peel

1 cinnamon stick

1/3 cup of sugar (or to taste) – same cup used for the rice

1 teaspoon of orange blossom water (or to taste)

1 tablespoon of butter

Ground cinnamon


1- Wash the rice with water until the water becomes clear.

2- In a saucepan add the rice and water and add a piece of lemon peel and a cinnamon stick.

3- Cover your saucepan, leave a little opening for the steam to come out, and cook the rice on medium heat. Stir from time to time, so that the rice at the bottom does not burn.

4- Once the water has evaporated, after around 15 minutes, add the milk.

5 - Cover and continue cooking and stirring from time to time.

6- When the milk has evaporated, another 15 minutes or so of cooking, add a little more milk and continue cooking.

7- When your rice is ready add sugar and butter. Mix well.

8- Turn off the heat and finish with orange blossom water.
