Coconut, Black Rice Pudding

Black rice have their important place in Chettinad cuisine, i have been pampered with inippu kavuni arisi aka sweetened chettinad black rice obviously anything with black rice goes immediately to my favourite food list. Few months back, i simply tried a coconut milk and black rice pudding for our dessert after a sunday meal. Everyone at home enjoyed thoroughly and this pudding became my kids favourite as well. Obviously whenever i get a chance to cook with black rice i never forget to dish out this incredible and very flavourful black rice pudding.

Vegan Coconut milk and black rice pudding

Black rice have numerous nutritional values,apart from making delicious desserts you can add this black rice very much in many more savoury dishes. They replace very well the white rice and i tried many dishes out of it, but unfortunately while checking the pictures in my camera i deleted them accidently. Once i get black rice next time, i'll definitely try and will post the recipe in my space. Coming to today's pudding, this delicious dessert goes to this week's blogging marathon, as i picked kid's delight- colourful dishes. After a simple one pot meal, my today's black rice pudding goes awesome under this theme.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#49.

This rice pudding looks very similar to what I made for Manipur ...I believe this black rice is very popular there, but did not know that Chettinad cuisine also serves it. Looks really good.

Love the color of that pudding. I had no idea that black rice was available in south India as well. Is it chewy?

I had also made the black rice pudding for the regional marathon without the coconut milk. Since then I have always wanted to make this with coconut milk. Now you are tempting me all over again!
