Method

  1. Place all ingredients, except coconut cream, in a medium pot.
  2. Bring to the boil and reduce heat to a gentle simmer. Stir occasionally to avoid mixture sticking to the bottom of the pot.
  3. Continue to cook slowly until the rice is cooked (or at the desired consistency) and covered in a creamy chocolate sauce, about 30–40 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in the coconut cream.

Tips

  • Using Koko Samoa will give a more traditional bitter-sweet taste. 
  • You can use brown rice with this recipe. The cooking time may be longer and add more water if needed for the desired consistency.
