This was great! Thank you. My boyfriend wanted me to make something with black rice and he absolutely loves coconut milk so this went over great. I think I'll use less water next time, I ended up straining the rice after more than two hours passed and the rice was more than tender enough.

This turned out very yummy. Thank you so much for posting the recipe. Just wanted to add, I saw that one of the commentators recommended soaking to rid of "dye" because everything turned purple. The purple coloring is the natural color of black rice's husks which are not removed. There's no dye involved. Just wanted to throw that out there. Thanks again.

A great pudding! As someone who needs to avoid most dairy due to an allergy, I was thrilled to find a rice pudding I can actually eat. The fact that I love coconut just makes it even better! I recently discovered black rice and was looking for different ways to enjoy it. This is a very tasty and easy dish, with a wonderful texture. Next time I may try using a lite coconut milk and reducing the sugar a bit, as it was a little sweet for me.

Brilliant, used exact measurements and turned out just like the photo however I would have reduced the water by 1/2 cup. Excellent recipe! make sure to use Glutinous Short Grain Black Rice (Also known as Forbidden Rice) as this will NOT work with wild rice :) Thanks!!!

We really, really loved this pudding. We decided to try making it in our Zojirushi fuzzy logic rice cooker rather than on the stove. That went fine, but for some reason we had to run it through two cycles before the water was absorbed (we ran it first on the Brown Rice setting, and then on the Porridge setting). Like another reviewer, we sprinkled sesame seeds on top, and they were great. We will definitely make this wonderful dish again.

This pudding tastes lovely. I added an tablespoon or two of the coconut milk to bring out the coconut taste. I learned that it is very important that you thoroughly wash the rice or soak it overnight to clean the grains of their dye. I am going to have to try this again as I was a bit lazy and did not wash it enough - after cooking, the entire pudding (sauce and all) was the color of an eggplant. This will not deter me from making this again though SO YUMMY! Thanks for sharing.

This is similar to a traditional dish in Malaysia which we call 'pulut hitam' which means 'black rice'. And the ingredients are almost exactly the same, except that instead of regular sugar, we use Palm sugar (brown and comes in blocks) and we add some Durian fruit into it....delicious!!

This dessert was outstanding and exactly like the one we get in our favorite Thai restaurant. They added corn, which sounds a little strange to us, but was delicious. Thank you!

Blink...this was so good, and creamy. I sprinkled some sesame seeds on top and it looked very dramatic. I will make this again. Thanks..
