Black Rice Banana Pudding | Balinese Recipe


Black Rice Banana Pudding
Bali, Indonesia is known for its rich culture and tradition. There are many places in Bali which are not commercialized and they are a perfect holiday destination. During our visit to Bali I tasted this Black rice pudding and all of us liked it. Black glutinous rice cooked with cocunut milk, pandan leaves(optional), gula melaka and served with banana's gives this drool worthy pudding.
It is a must to soak the black rice for a minimum of 6 hours or over night else they will never get cooked so easily. I soak them in hot water to make it more easier. Pandan leaves are optional and they give a nice flavor to the dish. The banana’s must be ripened to get a good taste.

Availabilty
I got a lot of queries for my earlier black rice recipes as to where they can purchase it and what brand I am using. I use the “Dragon Fly Black Rice” primarily because its available near my home in Fair Price shops in Singapore. This is from Thailand manufactured by http://www.urmatt.com/
