Balinese Black Rice Pudding Recipe – Resep Bubur Injin

It’s hard to find a foreign visitor to Bali who does not fall in love with the wonderful nutty flavor and melt-in-yourmouth smooth texture of Black Rice Pudding, served with swirls of delicious coconut cream on top.

Ingredients :

  • 1 cup (200 g) uncooked black glutinous rice (see note)
  • 3/4 cup (150 g) uncooked white glutinous rice
  • 6 cups (11/2 liters) water
  • 2 pandanus leaves, tied into a knot, or 1 drop vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup (50 g) shaved palm sugar or dark brown sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) coconut cream

Method :

  1. Rinse both types of glutinous rice in several changes of water until water runs clear, and soak overnight.
  2. In a saucepan, bring the glutinous rice, water and pandanus leaves or extract to a boil over medium heat and simmer uncovered for about 40 minutes, stirring occasionally until the rice is soft and cooked, with porridge-like consistency. Discard the pandanus leaves, if using. Add the palm sugar and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for about 5 minutes before removing from the heat.
  3. Combine the coconut cream and salt in a bowl and mix well.
  4. To serve, spoon the pudding into individual serving bowls and top with the salted coconut cream.

Note : Black glutinous rice is a variety of glutinous rice found mainly in Indonesia. Normal glutinous rice may be substituted, although the texture is not quite the same.
