I woke up with a sore throat this morning and just wanted soupy stuff today. There will be no chillies or fried stuff for me today, ....SAD....just something soft and wet like bubur pulut hitam.
Spring is almost here with pretty blossoms out blooming early already, I had wanted to head out to shoot some blossoms at the gardens. Instead, on my first sunny weekend, (yes, no rain, shocking, ain't it? ) I've a sore throat, feeling really bummed out at the moment.
So as a consolation prize, I cooked pulut hitam and went to watch some movies in bed. Fell asleep. What a waste of a good Saturday ;(
The good thing with this dessert is that it will fix my sugar crave and the black glutinuos rice will fill me up as I don't feel like eating any solids at the moment.

God! I feel like I have swallowed a box full of razor blades or smething.. yes, this is my self pity post.. ;)
200g black sticky (glutinous) rice
Sugar to taste
5 cups water
2 pandan leaves, knotted
1 cup coconut milk plus 1/2 teaspoon salt (mix well)
- Rinse the black sticky rice with water thoroughly until the water turns clear. Please take note that the color will remain “black” or “purple” in color but it should look clear.
- Add water and pandan leaves in a pot and bring it to boil. Add the black sticky rice into the pot and boil it on medium to low heat for 45-60 minutes or until the rice becomes soft and breaks up. Cover the pot with its lid.
- Keep checking the water level, if it’s become too dry, add more water.
- Add sugar to taste.
- Serve the bee koh moy in small bowls topped with a spoonful of coconut milk. If you like it creamier, add more coconut milk.
