About Chakhao Amubi (Black Rice Pudding)

Black Rice, also known as purple rice is one of the healthiest forms of rice available today – rich in Protein, Iron, Antioxidants, Vitamin E and Fibre. There’s also an interesting story associated with black rice which I would like to share. During the years when China was ruled by an emperor, black rice was believed to have magical powers and that it could extend lives, hence it was set aside only for the emperor and members of the royal family. The common people were not allowed to eat or even grow this rice for themselves and if anyone dared to do that, he would have to face life threatening consequences. Hence Black rice is also known as the ‘forbidden rice’. The flavours of this rice are awesome and the pudding tastes amazing. So lets go healthy this Valentines.

Ingredients to make Chakhao Amubi (Black Rice Pudding)

  • Black Rice 1 Cup
  • Milk (preferably full cream) 8 Cups
  • Sugar 1 Cup or as per taste
  • Cardamom powder 1/2 tsp
  • Raisins as desired (Optional)

How to make Chakhao Amubi (Black Rice Pudding)

  1. Wash the rice and soak it in water for about 3-4 hours.
  2. Heat the milk in a big vessel till it comes to a boil.
  3. Drain the rice and gently add it to the Milk.
  4. Cook on medium-low, stirring occasionally, till the rice is cooked and the Kheer reaches a thick consistency.
  5. Add the Sugar, Cardamom powder and Raisins. Keep stirring till the sugar is dissolved and desired consistency is reached.
  6. The Kheer will thicken more once it cools so adjust the consistency accordingly. If you think it has become too thick, you may add a bit of Milk here.
  7. Take it off the heat and garnish as desired. I have used Cashews, Raisins and Pistachios here, you may also use slivers of almonds or any other dry fruit you prefer.
  8. You may serve it warm or absolutely chilled as per your choice.
