Black Glutinous Rice Dessert

 Bubur Pulut Hitam
for 2 servings
3/4 cup black glutinous rice
1/2 cup palm sugar
5-10 tbsp white sugar
1/2 cup coconut milk
5 cups water
2 pandan leaves - knotted

  1. Wash the rice with water and rinse.  Soak in water for a few hours or overnight.
  2. Boil water and pandan leaves in a pot.  Add the rice and bring to a boil.  When boiling, reduce to low heat and stir occasionally to prevent the rice from getting burnt. 
  3. Continue to boil for 1 hour or more or until rice is soft and breaks up.  Top up with more water once the mixture gets too dry while boiling.
  4. When the mixture becomes mushy, remove the pandan leaves from the pot and add palm sugar and white sugar and stir to mix well.  Check sweetness and add more sugar if needed.
  5. Top the dessert with spoonfuls of coconut milk before serving.
