This black rice pudding was my favourite dessert as I was travelling through Asia.
I first had it in Laos, and the love continued all the way through Cambodia and Thailand. It’s one of those dessert that every time I saw it on the menu, I absolutely had to order it. Not only is rice one of my favourite foods, but I cannot resist mango. I grew up eating it in Brazil and I still eat it at any given opportunity.
It’s a fibre rich dessert, full of good fats and delicious sweet fruit. Topped with crunchy pistachios and toasted coconut? It just becomes irresistible. I even prefer it over cake sometimes, especially when I have extra servings of black rice that I kept from the day before, just makes it the easiest dessert to make!
