  • 1/2 cup black sticky rice
  • 2-3 pandan leaves (or 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • plain yogurt (no sugar, no flavor)
  • crushed ice (for serving, optional)
  • more honey (for serving, optional)
  • mint leaves (for garnishing)


  • Wash black sticky rice and soak for 4-6 hours. If you soak it for a shorter amount of time or skip this step, you will need to increase the cooking time.
  • After soaking, rinse rice and put in a pot. Tie pandas leaves into a knot, put in the same pot. Add salt and water, bring to a boil. Reduce to low - medium-low heat, cover and cook for 20 minutes.
  • After 20 minutes, add honey, stir and then cover, cook for 5-10 more minutes or until rice is soft and the pudding is glossy and thick as you like.

Update 10/21/19: I recently came up with a way to make the black sticky rice pudding in a pressure cooker. With this new method, there is no need to soak the rice in advance. You can find the cooking instructions in my Pressure Cooker Black Sticky Rice Pudding post.
