Arroz Zambito / Zambito Rice Jan 19, 2014
Si bien los españoles trajeron el arroz con leche, alguien tuvo la brillante idea de crear la mazamorra más típica del Perú a partir de su receta. Así nació el arroz zambito.

Se sigue prácticamente el mismo procedimiento que con el arroz con leche, sólo que se le agrega pecanas, pasas rubias y, principalmente, chancaca (chankaka en quechua, es la melaza densa de la caña de azúcar puesta a solidificar en moldes). La chancaca se coloca en una olla aparte y se disuelve a fuego lento hasta que forme una miel que se mezcla con el arroz, y luego se añaden las frutas secas. Se adorna con coco rallado. Es la chancaca la encargada de darle al preparado su característico color marrón, el cual a su vez hizo que el pueblo empezara a llamarlo "zambito" (negro).

------------------------

Although the spaniards brought rice pudding, someone had the bright idea of ​​creating the most typical of Peru porridge from their recipe. Thus was born the "Arroz zambito".

Has same procedure as the "arroz con leche", which only adds pecans, raisins and mainly "chancaca"/molasses (chankaka in quechua, is dense molasses from sugar cane put to solidify in molds). The molasses is placed in a separate saucepan and dissolved over low heat until it forms a syrup that is mixed with rice, and then add the dried fruits. It is decorated with grated coconut. Molasses is responsible for giving its characteristic brown color to this porridge, which in turn caused the people began to call it "zambito" (black).
