Total time: 
Serves: 2
  • 1 to 1½ cups water (depending on how your rice is cooking and how loose you want your pudding)
  • ½ cup black rice
  • ½ cup coconut milk
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons of unsweetened coconut flakes, toasted to golden
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • pinch salt
  1. In a medium pot, mix 1 cup water, rice and coconut milk, and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
  2. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Rice will be tender. If rice gets too dry during last half of cooking, add a little more water to loosen.
  3. When the rice is tender, add the sugar and salt. Simmer 2 more minutes, or until pudding is desired texture. You can add more water if you want a looser pudding.
  4. Spoon into two bowls, top with toasted coconut flakes, and serve warm. A drizzle of sweetened condensed milk or coconut cream also makes the rice pudding more of a dessert.
