For those who really like sweet food, you may also top the pudding off with a drizzle of coconut cream or a mild fruit such as bananas. This is a traditional recipe my friend’s mother brought with her from Thailand. Some of the ingredients might be hard to find in the non-coastal areas of the USA. There are a number of online import retailers that carry these ingredients

  • ½ cup uncooked glutinous white rice

  4. Great recipe. I suggest pairing it with small cubes of mango
  5. USED A RICE COOKER! i picked up forbidden black rice at Whole Foods bulk section! It's a little pricey. But it was super easy to make.
