Purple Glutinous Rice Dessert

I like to cook dessert on Sunday afternoons, so that hubby & I can enjoy it for our tea. Few weeks ago I made an attempt to cook purple glutinous rice dessert. I asked my hubby to buy RM1 of coconut milk in the morning so that I can cook the dessert with enhanced aroma.

We really like this creamy dessert. It is not only fragrant, but also very lemak with salted coconut milk added. I like to add lots of coconut milk, and I can finish it up one big bowl. :) I know this is not so healthy, but I just can't resist. :(

Purple glutinous rice is also called as black glutinous rice. It contains Protein, fiber and carbohydrates. Besides, it is rich in vitamin B complex and minerals. It also aids blood cell production. The rice must be cooked till the outer layer is broken so that it releases vitamins and minerals. If not cook thoroughly it may cause digestive problem.

Purple glutinous rice dessert is quite simple to prepare, but it takes hours to cook. This is how I make the dessert.

Purple Glutinous Rice Dessert

Serves 2


6/8 cup of black glutinous rice
2 litres water
Rock sugar to taste
16 dried longans, washed and drained
6 pandan leaves, tie into 2 knots
Serve with salted coconut milk


1. Wash and drain glutinous rice.

2. Bring water to boil in a pot, and add in the pandan leaves.

3. Pour in the rice and bring it to boil. Turn to small heat and cook till the rice turn soft.

4. Add the longan and rock sugar and boil the porridge until it turns sticky.

5. Serve hot with salted coconut milk.

Tips: Add a pinch of salt to the coconut milk. This will enhance the flavor and make the dessert more delicious. It has the magic power!

Malaysia Food Cuisine Blog, mixed with red bean? Oh, this is new to me. Thanks for your info.

SimpleGirl, yalor, once a while nia ok la.

Selba, thanks for sharing Indonesia words. :)

Foof for Tots, err I read some info onlline: soak the rice in water for few hours. Perhaps this is the way to shorted the cooking time. It takes me about 1 and a half hour to cook this dessert.

Elinluv, yeap moderation. :) We live to eat, so must try averything la, haha...
