BM# 73: Week 3/ Day 3
Theme: Ingredient through Mail
Dish: Black & White Rice Pudding
For the final day of cooking with ingredients from fellow blogging marathoners, I made this creamy and delicious Black & White Rice pudding with the black rice that I got from Mir. I actually wanted to make this dish for ‘Milk based desserts’ theme last month.
This recipe is from Food and Wine site and I bookmarked it to try. Thanks to Mir for the black rice from Thailand. This dessert is made with layers of black rice and jasmine rice puddings. Both the puddings are cooked with coconut milk, that makes it very creamy and delicious.In the original recipe, jasmine rice pudding had fresh pineapple pieces added. But I didn’t have any pineapple, so flavored it with orange zest and some chopped orange instead. I think other fruits like berries, especially strawberries would be really good in here.It is quite a pretty looking dessert with all that layering. It is a great make ahead dessert for parties. Any leftover rice pudding(s) would be great as breakfast with chopped fruit. It tastes amazing served at room temperature or even chilled.
