Black Rice Pudding

Rated as 4.5 out of 5 Stars

"For those who really like sweet food, you may also top the pudding off with a drizzle of coconut cream or a mild fruit such as bananas. This is a traditional recipe my friend's mother brought with her from Thailand. Some of the ingredients might be hard to find in the non-coastal areas of the USA. There are a number of online import retailers that carry these ingredients"
