Breakfast Black Rice Porridge with Coconut Cream
Note: In Thailand, the black sticky rice pudding is sweetened but not salted for it's assumed that it will be served with a salty coconut cream topping. When stirred together in an individual serving bowl, the two components form one delicious whole. We're not going to do that here as it's impractical to pre-season the topping for something that is to be sweetened according to each person's individual taste. Instead, we'll keep the coconut cream topping unseasoned and add right into the rice porridge just enough salt to balance out the sweetness from the sugar.
