I remember how much I loved this dessert from a holiday in Bangkok. This wonderful Thai dish is so easy to make and makes a great dessert or snack. I'm convinced it's the best rice pudding in the world! Yum!
2 cups black sticky rice (soaked overnight)
5 cups water
2 cups sugar
Sweet Coconut Cream
1 cup coconut cream
2 tsp rice flour
½ tsp salt
Pinch of sugar
2 cups grated coconut
1 cup brown sugar
Wash the black sticky rice. Combine in a saucepan with water. Place over medium heat and boil until the rice is cooked through and split. Add the sugar, continue boiling until sugar dissolves.
Sweet Coconut Cream: Mix the coconut cream, rice flour, salt and sugar in a saucepan and cook over low heat until boiling. Remove from heat.
Caramelised Coconut: Mix the grated coconut and brown sugar in a saucepan and stir constantly over medium heat until thick. Remove from heat.
To serve: spoon the black sticky rice into the serving bowl and top with some sweet coconut cream and caramelised coconut. Serve hot or cold.
