1/2 cup Chak hao Black rice

1 cup water
3 cardamom
2 bay leaves
10 cashews, pistachios or almonds(optional)

2.In a pan, add 1 cup of water and bring it to a boil. Now add Bay leaves, cardamom, soaked rice.
3.Add in milk, cashews and give a nice stir and let it cook on medium flame. Keep stirring to avoid the milk sticking to the pan.
4.Once the milk reduces by 75% and the rice breaks easily, then add sugar and give a nice stir.

We like to have it chill and adding a dollop of coconut milk adds a nice flavour.
