Prepare a ring tray with parchment paper.
Cook the black rice in 4 cups of water in medium fire until its soft and sticky this will take about 40 minutes to allow the rice to cook slowly to thicken.
Add coconut milk and rice syrup then stir until all is mixed well and forms a thick consistency.
In a double-boiler (bain-marie) add 1/2 cup maple syrup ( or honey) to simmer then add slices of ginger and raisins and cook for few minutes to allow the flavours to mingle with the syrup then pour the mixture into the rice and stir it to spread and blend into the black rice.
Now you can spread the black rice evenly over the base of the ring tray and allow it to cool down and set.
In a small bowl mix rice syrup or (non-vegans honey) and freshly squeezed lemon juice, the mixture will give an extra distinctive tangy taste to the layers of the tart.
Pour the sweet-sour liquid over the rice and spread evenly and set aside to allow the first layer to cool and get firm.
During the process of preparing the second layer, the first layer you can cool sufficiently either naturally in a cool place or place the ring tray in a fridge to cool down and firm up rapidly.
2nd layer In a medium, pot add gram flour, regular water, a pinch of salt and mix until there are no lumps to allow gram flour to form a smooth batter with water. Place the pot of gram flour batter over medium heat and stir continuously until it gets firm and thick.
Pour it over the Black rice in the ring tray and allow it to cool and settle.
2nd layer: In a pot add water, 1 cup gram flour and mix well until flour is thoroughly mixed and has no clumps.
Bring the water to boil and continue stirring while it is getting hot.
Once the mixture gets starchy and begins to get firm, add rice syrup or honey according to your taste. Bring the fire very low and keep stirring the mixture.
In the next pot, regular water and add the carob powder. With a whisk carob powder into the water until its all smooth until there are no lumps then add coconut milk, maple syrup and allow the mixture to simmer over low fire.
In another pot melt, agar-agar in water and once completely melted add the agar-agar to carob mixture and stir well.
When the agar-agar mixture is smooth and clear, add to the simmering carob liquid and stir well and it all gets thoroughly mixed.
Pour the mixture over the gram flour in the ring tray and allow to cool and get firm.
Once the top layer cools and already firm, you can decorate the top with any topping, be creative and enjoy.
3rd layer: Add normal water and bring to boil and add agar-agar. Keep stirring until agar dissolves.
In a separate bowl add 1 cup water and dissolve carob powder once its all mixed well pour into agar-agar mixture and stir carob mix continuously until it begins to get firm.
In a ring, tray lay place parchment or vegetable paper and cut it out to size to fit the ring. Now you can spread out the first layer of black rice evenly around the ring tray to about 1/3 thickness of the width of the dish.
Next spread out the second layer of gram flour evening over the black rice to cover the 2/3 of the ring tray and allow it to cool off for a few minutes before you pour over the third layer.
Once the second layer is sufficiently cool, you can now spread the last segment of carob on top of the gram flour evenly to cover the to the top of ring tray and allow the dessert set in a cool place.
