Indian Black Rice Pudding
First off the ginger snap crumble
6 simple Ginger Snaps ( organic if you can) ( crush them in bowl set aside)
Also you will need
2 tbs of organic honey
1 tsp of cardamom
1tsp of cinnamon
1/2 tsp clove
1 tsp of vanilla
pinch of sea salt
1 bag of ginger tea
1 bag of chai tea
1/4 cup of organic sweetened dried cranberries
1 1/2 tbs of organic lemon zest
1 tbs of freshed squeezed organic lemon juice
2 tbs of organic unsweetened dehydrated coconut fine flakes
Cook 1 cup of black rice I use Forbidden black recipe but here is my twist : my package calls for 1 3/4 cups of water ( I use tea instead) let water come to boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer at this time add a bag of organic ginger tea and organic chai tea and let steep for about 3 -5 minutes, then remove the bags.
I add 2 tbs of honey, 1 tsp of cardamom 1tsp of cinnamon 1/2 tsp clove, dash of salt and 1 tsp of vanilla. Stir well. And then add the lemon juice.
Cook the rice for about 30 – 35 minutes once the rice is cooked add the cranberries they will help sweeten the rice then add 3/4 cups of organic 2% milk or vanilla rice milk or almond milk continue to simmer and let cook for about 15- 20 minutes until there is just about an inch of liquid left in the pot. You do not want to cook out the liquid completely.
Time to make the medley:
Just mix together the gingersnaps, coconut and half of the lemon zest ( leave the rest for the top)
I used a champagne glass: You want to build the dessert like a parfait.
Add the ( medley crumble) then the rice then the crumble and top this layer with only coconut to break up the color
then add the rice and top lastly with the medley and the extra lemon zest. I lemon is not your thing you can skip this but this dessert is pretty sweet.
And there you have it Indian Black Rice Pudding.
