Put the milk, rice, vanilla, saffron, cinnamon, and sugar in a cooking pot and heat up until it cooks (under stirring). After the mixture has cooked for a few minutes, put the heat lower and let gently go for 40 min.

Discard vanilla, and cinnamon. Pour the rice pudding in cups.

Serve garnished with a sprenkle of brown sugar. (optional)
