Total Time1 hr
- 1 (14 ounce) can full-fat coconut milk
- 1 cup water
- ½ cup U.S.-grown purple rice
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 egg
- ⅓ cup white sugar
- coconut cream, optional
- toasted, shredded coconut, optional
- 1 banana
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- In a medium pot bring coconut milk, water, purple rice, and salt to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and continue to cook for 40-45 minutes, stir every 5 minutes to prevent rice from burning to the bottom.
- Mix together egg and white sugar in a small bowl. Temper the egg mixture by slowing whisking in ½ cup of hot coconut milk mixture. Add the egg mixture into the rice and whisk for another 5-8 minutes until thick and creamy. Allow to cool until serving.
- Melt butter and brown sugar in a skillet. Cut the banana in half lengthwise and then cut in half again to get 4 segments. Place the bananas in the skillet cut side down and cook for 5 minutes until caramelized.
- Fill 4 containers or serving bowls with the purple rice pudding and top with a segment of caramelized banana. Garnish with coconut cream and toasted shredded coconut. Serve warm or chilled.
