  • 1
    Heat all ingredients except papaya to boiling in 2-quart saucepan, stirring once or twice; reduce heat. Cover and simmer 19 minutes (do not lift cover or stir); remove from heat. Fluff rice lightly with fork. Cover and let steam 5 to 10 minutes.
  • 2
    Mash half of the papaya. Reserve 2 tablespoons chopped papaya. Stir mashed papaya and remaining chopped papaya into rice. Heat, stirring occasionally, until mixture is hot. Sprinkle with reserved papaya and, if desired, additional cinnamon.

Expert Tips

  • If you’re in the mood to experiment, go ahead and replace the papaya with an equal amount of chopped mango.
  • How do you know when a papaya is ripe? When its smooth, unblemished skin is at least half yellow and feels slightly soft when pressed, go for it!
