This is a great dessert for the Ramadan month. Bubur Pulut Hitam (Black Glutinous Rice) is normally eaten with Coconut Milk and I love the smooth taste of this yummy dessert. My sister in law gave me a packet of black glutinous rice bought from Kedah. Very likely it was imported from Thailand through the southern border. The black glutinous rice should be boiled with water until they turned soft before adding the sugar or else the rice grains will never become tender.
Black Glutinous Rice, 1 cup
Water, 5 bowls
Coconut milk, from 1 coconut
Sugar to taste
Salt, a dash
Pandan Leaves (Screw pine), 5 pcs
Pour water into a pot and add in the black glutinous rice. Put in the pandan leaves (screw pine). Boil until the rice grains turn soft. You will have to open a lid a little or the content inside would overflow during cooking. Add salt and sugar to taste. Scoop a portion of the vegetarian bubur pulut hitam(black glutinous rice porridge, hak lor mai chook) in to a serving bowl. Pour a little coconut milk on top and serve.
