Known also as Thai Black rice, this is a very attractive, deep purple colour when cooked. It adds unique color and exotic taste to any meal.
Rinse the rice under running water for a few minutes then place in a saucepan with the water and tied pandanus leaf.
Bring it slowly to the boil then reduce the heat and simmer slowly until all the water is absorbed, about 30 minutes.
Remove the pot from the heat and cover with foil to allow the rice to finish steaming through, about 10 minutes.
Remove the pandanus leaf.
Place the palm sugar in a separate pot with a dash of water and boil, stirring occasionally, until the palm sugar has dissolved and the consistency is slightly syrupy.
Reheat the rice gently on the stove, adding the palm sugar syrup a little at a time until it is sweet enough.
Keep a little syrup aside.
Serve the rice in a bowl with an extra drizzle of syrup and pour the coconut milk over the top.
Serve with slices of fresh banana or mango, in season.

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery.
