Has anyone here had black rice pudding. It is a Thia dish using black rice (a very sticky type of rice) and coconut milk.

    I love rice pudding, and I love Thai food, but I've never had the pleasure; how does it compare, flavor-wise, to "European" rice pudding? I like mine with lots of cinnamon on top, raisins, and very eggy, by the way.

      Are you sure that it's black rice that it's made from, or are you taking someone's word for it? You can never ask enough questions about Asian food...or maybe you shouldn't ask any.

        Actually. It is BLACK RICE!! It is a specific type of rice from Thailand. I am very careful about what I eat (I am Vegan) and I always ask.

          I've had black rice pudding before - in Bali last year...it was warm and had bananas in it too. Very awesome.
          I know you can buy black rice here, i got some at Trader Joe's a few weeks ago...but i think that kind is from japan. anyhoo.

            I have black rice too. It is rather sticky. Also, it's not all black, it runs from black to med brown. This is a natural variation in the rice as it grows & can't be seperated out (learned that on the package). I think I picked up my bag at a local organic store.

              Where do you buy black rice? I have had it before at restaurants, but I don't know of any grocery store that sells it. Is there an online site from which it can be purchased?

                As far as I know, there are at least two kinds of black rice. You folks seem to be talking about the sweet, sticky Thai rice. There's also something called "Forbidden" black rice, a Chinese variety, that's not sweet or sticky, and is jet black when it's cooked. It's also considerably more expensive.

                The pudding with the sweet rice sounds fabulous. I'm all over it. Let you know after this weekend.

                  I went to a neighborhood Asian market today to get the stuff to make some hot chile oil (peanut oil and dried Thai red chiles) and while I was there, I kind of looked over the shelves and one item that caught my eye was canned tapioca pudding with coconut milk from Thailand. It sounded good, actually.

                  I didn't see any black rice though. This place is in a primarily Vietnamese neighborhood but they carry lots of Thai products.
