This dessert brings back my childhood memory when growing up in Penang. Those early days, an old Indian man will walk around the village selling this dessert.
Bee Koh Moy is a thick, creamy nutty dessert made with the simplest ingredients. Sweet Black Glutinous Rice, water and sugar. Jusr before serving, you can opt to add a splash of creamy coconut milk and you'll have a yummy treat!! This is just like the English Rice Pudding.
- 200g black glutinous rice
- sugar to taste
- 5 cups of water
- 2 pandan leaves, knotted
- 1 cup coconut milk plus 1/2 tsp salt (mix well)
Soaked the black glutinous rice for 30-60 minutes. Then rinse the rice throughly.
In a pot add water, pandan leaves and the rice and bring it to boil. Then reduce the heat to medium and continue boiling for 40-60 minutes or until the rice becomes soft and breaks up. Keep checking the water level and if it's too dry, add more water & also stir once a while as the rice will stick to the pot. Add the sugar to taste.
Serve the bee koh moy in a small bowls topped with spoonful of coconut milk. If you like it creamier, add more coconut milk.
