I have read with interest the info on rice and thought I would add my two
bits... Here is a dessert that was the result of a creative afternoon in
the kitchen - I have posted this recipe to other mailings lists and I eat

Black Rice Pudding:
1 cup black rice, cooked in about 2-21/2 cups water so it is very moist.
Add about 1 tablespoon of soft brown sugar or other sweetener (I often use
pureed muscatel sultanas). Then add about half a cup of shredded fresh
coconut. Mix all well together, place into a shallow tray and press down
into tray firmly. Refrigerate for a couple of hours. When nice and cold
and ready to serve cut into slices of about 5cm by 2cm. Dribble fresh
coconut milk over - you get a great black and white effect which looks
Fresh Banana Cream:
Freeze some bananas (make sure to peel them before freezing)... When rock
hard stick in a blender (I use a champion juicer for this) and puree - you
won't believe how creamy it is.
Serve Black Rice Pudding and Banana ice cream together with a few cubes of
fresh mango... Simply divine!
Hope you enjoy,
