Nap Naang {Black Rice Pudding}

Rice Pudding

Black rice pudding is a chewy yet delicious pudding. First when I saw this Nagaland dish I was little hesitant of color & how it would turn out. The dish looked more of purple then black after making the pudding & was filled with fiber in every bite. Again this is a simple & easy dish you will love. The original recipe didn't include any dry fruits, raisins & elachi powder in it.
