Bunga telang will give a very nice blue colour. As I cannot get any here, I used blue colouring instead.
- 100g gula melaka
- 3 tbsp sugar
- 1/2 cup of water
- 250g glutinous rice, washed and soaked for 1hour
- 20 bunga telang(blue pea flower) or a drop or two blue colouring
- 1/2 coconut, grated or 150g dessicated coconut
- 200ml coconut milk
- 2 daun pandan
Wash blue flower. Blanch in 1 cup hot water and allow to soak for 1 hour. Drain blue water into rice and soak for futher 3 hours.Melt both sugar in water. Sieve. (If you are making the pulut inti with dessicated coconut, soaked the dessicated coconut with the sugar syrup for about 30 minutes). Put the coconut into a non-stick pan together with pandan leaves. Cook till dry. Stirring at all time.
Drain the glutinous rice. Add the santan and steam until cook. Stir well occasionally. Cool the rice.Serve the rice with the coconut.
