Yesterday I went to the local Asian Grocer.
I was on a mission to buy a packet of dried shrimp.
(A recipe for fried rice with crab meat needs the dried shrimp.)
They had no dried shrimp, but on impulse I bought and came home with:
1 packet of black sticky rice
1 packet of white Thai glutinous rice (white sticky rice)
1 bottle of pandan essence
After tasting the most glorious black sticky rice (with coconut custard) last weekend at the Thai food festival, I was determined to make this dish at home.
I'll wait for the next rainy day to make it.
If it works out ok I will share the recipe.
