Bubur Pulut Hitam - 黑糯米

Bubur Pulut Hitam – 黑糯米

Bubur Pulut Hitam originated from Indonesia, and has been fondly adopted as a local dessert in Singapore and Malaysia. In old days, black rice was nicknamed “forbidden rice” because, as you probably guessed it, it was reserved for the blue-blooded. Fortunately, as our societies became modern and affluent, these dishes have become available for us to share and enjoy. Although mostly used to decorate dishes today, you can savour its health benefits in the form of this unassuming delicious little dessert – made easy!
