Black Rice Coconut Pudding

Feb 17, 2011

Black Rice Pudding 
Chinese black rice is unusual as it is. All recipes surrounding this delightful, aromatic and appetizing rice are pretty straightforward. You follow the instructions on the package and you will end up with something fantastic. I first cooked it with almonds and orange juice, following the recipe on the package and served it with curry chicken. Then I gave this desert version a shot; it was quiet fantastic too. While I was still getting over this new discovery, I ran into the "curried cauliflower and black rice" recipe at Mika's blog to whom I am very grateful now, and made and ate it two nights in a row. And that's how the whole package was exhausted in a week.   

Chinese Black Rice 
So far, curry seems to be the most harmonizing companion when you prepare black rice as a savory course. Coconut milk seems to be the other. I was going in and out of the kitchen constantly for this pudding since it turned out to be not a desert but a snack to munch on around the clock.

This is true treasure for me who hates circling around the same boring ingredients. Revolution! Am so appy!
