Source of recipe: I have never successfully made rice pudding before. I tried to make a rice pudding from the Betty Crocker cookbook once and literally every single time it turned out too runny or it would curdle in the pan. This pudding is made on the stove top, so I was able to keep a close eye on it. Plus it's coconut milk which doesn't curdle right?

Sounds delicious! I will try this next time I make black rice pudding - Thank you:) I usually make mine with cocnut milk and a plum compote, but lemon and fig sound great! Lemon will certainly curdle milk, but the rice should make a starchy, cohesive consistency...
