One of the desserts I was introduced to while living in
Black glutinous rice - 1 cup
Coconut milk – 1 bowl. Stir in some salt and keep in the fridge till ready to serve
Wash the Black glutinous rice well. In a hard bottomed vessel Add water and this rice and bring it to a boil without a lid, glutinous rice tends to becomes sticky so you need to cook it without a lid. Since it is cooked without a lid, it takes a longer time to cook. Once the rice comes to a boil, cook on a low flame (on sim). It takes about an hour. You can check the spatula with which u r stirring to see whether the rice is getting mashed or not to check whether it is done. Stir occasionally to prevent the bottom from getting burnt. Add palm sugar to taste and pinch of salt. Alternatively, you can cook this in a slow cooker for a couple of hours.
Serve hot with a few spoonfuls of thick coconut milk on top.
