Black Glutinous Rice Pudding & Giveaway @ Nithu's Kitchen

Black glutinous rice is highly rich in fiber and very healthy.

"Glutinous rice is a short-grained Asian rice that turns sticky when cooked" Glutinous here refers to glue-like stickiness and not the gluten (Source: Wikipedia)

This rice pudding is called "kavuni Arisi" among chettiars and is a famous chettinad sweet. I've already posted a recipe on this before. This recipe I learnt from my MIL doesn't need the rice to be soaked over night.

No. of serving : 4
Black glutinous rice - 1 1/4 cup
Water - 4 cups
Sugar - 3/4 cup
Ghee - 1 tbsp
Coconut - 1/4 cup (optional)

1. Pressure cook the rice with water. After one whistle, keep the flame on low for about 15 minutes and switch off
2. After the steam is gone, add the sugar, ghee, coconut. Yummy pudding is ready!
