Bubur Pulut Hitam (Black Glutinous Rice Dessert)

July 19, 2017 | Recipe by Bake with Paws

Black Glutinous Rice Dessert!  In Penang we call it Bee Koh Moy and in Malay is Pulut Hitam.

I managed to buy some organic sticky black glutinous rice during our last visit to Bangkok which I cooked last night. Cooking Bee Koh Moy reminds me of my late granny. She loved to make this for us as breakfast. I remember she would slow cook it over a charcoal stove from the night before. She also shredded the coconut and squeeze out the milk early in the morning, all by hand. We would enjoy Bee Koh Moy for breakfast before leaving for school.

250g coconut milk + 1 tsp salt (you may boil the coconut milk or serve fresh)

  1. Wash and rinse the glutinous rice thoroughly and soak in water for several hours or overnight.
