You may find this kind of sweet porridge sold at street vendor in Indonesia. Normally it is sold together with mung beans sweet porridge, and most of the time the seller mix them in one bowl just before serving. But for me, I rather have the black glutinous rice one only. I like it more than the mung beans. And it has not changed, even though my husband loves to have the mung beans one. So at home I normally prepare it separately at a different time.
People have it at breakfast time or as snack.
Since Masbar event's theme for this month is sweet porridge, I decided to use my old file picture (yes, you are right..the year of the pictures is 2009 and indeed it was taken last year) which never been published before to share it with my beloved readers. Here is the recipe..
250g black glutinous rice, washed and soaked overnight in water, drained
2 pandan leaves
90g granulated sugar, added as desired
4cm ginger, cracked it with pestle
300mL coconut milk
1 pandan leaf
Boil the glutinous rice with 2L water until cook. Add sugar, ginger and pandan leaves and continue to cook until done/soft and thick. Remove from heat.
Boil the coconut milk with salt and pandan leaf and stir while boiling. To serve, put the sweet porridge in a bowl and pour the coconut milk sauce over.
