Without turning an ordinary colorful dish to a black & white one inside Photoshop, I searched and selected the real black & white ingredients and props to make this project worked. I can’t deny that this is certainly one of my favorite posts. I have so much fun creating it; however, it’s also the most difficult one to date.
I have always wanted to do the black & white post ever since I saw ‘donna hay: the black & white issue’ back in Aug-Sep, 2013. This concept has been in my mind. I also know that shooting black & white is NOT an easy task; though, I struggled, got frustrated, did a research, and kept shooting. A week of constantly shooting without artificial light, I have learned so much from my mistakes. As it turned out, numerous photos couldn’t be used in this post. Despite all that, I do love the challenge and it’s such a fun project.
Don’t let the fact that I created this recipe for the color purpose put you off making it. I intend to serve this chocolate & black rice pudding with fresh blackberry, not only for the color purpose, but also for the wonderful combination it provides. Fresh blackberry cut through the sweetness of this pudding so perfectly; as you might already know, chocolate goes so well with blackberry. This dessert is undeniably delicious and the easiest dessert I’ve ever made. There is no reason for you not to try it.
I will definitely do ‘the black & white’ post again with different recipes and different light setting. Until then, I surely hope you enjoy this post.
- 1 cup Black Rice
- 1 cup water
- 2 cups whole milk
- 2 tablespoons Heavy Cream
- 1 tablespoon Salted Butter
- 6-8 ounces dark chocolate sauce
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- Pinch Of Salt
- fresh blackberries, as preferred
- sweetened condensed milk, to serve (option)
- Combine the rice, water, milk, cream, butter, and salt in a medium saucepan. Bring it to a gentle boil, then cover the pot, reduce it to low, and simmer for 30-45 minutes, stirring occasionally during this stage. It takes time to cook black rice, try & let it simmer until soften; it may take longer than indicated. Remove the pot from the stove and slowly drizzle in the beaten egg, stirring constantly.
- Remove the pot from the stove and add dark chocolate sauce. Return to low heat for 5 minutes to finish cooking.
- Top each portion of rice pudding with fresh blackberry, drizzle with condensed milk if you prefer & serve warm.
