Total Time: 90 minutes

Cuisine: Asian


  • black rice
  • salt
  • bananas
  • water
  • palm sugar
  • coconut milk


  • To begin making the Balinese Black Rice Pudding, wash and soak the black rice with water for 6 hours
  • In a heavy bottomed saucepan, cook the rice with coconut milk, water and salt to taste in a vessel on high heat and once it starts to boil bring it to low heat
  • Keep cooking until the entire liquid is almost absorbed in the rice and the rice gets cooked evenly
  • It's fine to leave a little bit of liquid as the pudding will continue to thicken once it starts to cool
  • Add 2 tablespoon of palm sugar at the end and check for sweetness
  • Slice the banana and coat it with palm sugar on a pan for 10 minutes and keep it ready before serving
  • Just before serving drizzle with coconut milk and add the sliced bananas and serve Balinese Rice pudding hot or cold
  • Serve Balinese Rice pudding as a dessert after a simple Asian meal of Vegetarian Thai Red Curry and steamed rice
