See how easy it is to make this delicious Sweet Canjica. Check out the step-by-step instructions for preparing it, using the following ingredients:


  • 500g of corn for canjica

  • 1 liter of water

  • 1 liter of milk

  • 1 can of condensed milk

  • 200g sugar (or to taste)

  • 100g grated coconut (optional)

  • Cinnamon powder to taste

  • Cloves to taste

  • Salt to taste

Preparation mode

  • Wash the canjica well and leave it to soak in water for at least 8 hours or overnight.
  • After soaking, drain the water and place the canjica in a pressure cooker. Cover with water, add a pinch of salt and cook over medium heat. Once the pressure is reached, cook for about 40 minutes or until the canjica is tender. Set aside.
  • In another pan, add the milk, condensed milk, sugar, grated coconut, cinnamon powder and cloves to taste. Mix well and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly to prevent the mixture from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
  • Once the broth is hot and well mixed, add the cooked and drained hominy. Cook over low heat for another 20 to 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the hominy is very creamy and the flavors blend.
  • Turn off the heat and let the canjica rest for a few minutes before serving. Serve hot or cold, sprinkled with more ground cinnamon if desired.
  • Canjica can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. If desired, it can be frozen in individual portions and reheated when needed.
