Serve Black Rice Pudding as either a dessert or a Breakfast Meal. Delicious with cubed mangos or blueberries.
Sticky black rice
1 Cup (16 tbs)
7 Cup (112 tbs)
Palm sugar/Natural sugar
1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
Canned light coconut milk
1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs), cubes or puree in a blender
Soak black rice in 5-6 cups of hot or boiling water for 6-8 hours. Using 3 1/2 cups of this water, bring the rice and pandan leaves to a boil in a sauce pan and simmer on low for one hour, stirring occasionally so that it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan. Rice should be soft and sticky.
While rice is still warm, stir in 1/2 cup palm sugar (purchase from an Asian food shop; you may need to grate it as it will be a hard, brown sugar-like block) or the natural sugar, and the vanilla.
Serve with coconut milk and top with mango.
