Ingredients

1 ¾ cup black glutinous rice (note: it must be sticky rice or else the recipe will not turn out)

1 ½ cup fresh coconut milk

½ cup palm sugar

5 cups water

2 pandan leaves, finely ground

5 cups of water

Salt

1.       Rinse the rice for several minutes in running water, and make sure to drain thoroughly afterwards.

2.      Put the water, rice, and ground pandan leaves into a large put, allowing to cook for 45 minutes over a medium heat

3.      Add in palm syrup, and cook until the liquids begin to evaporate

4.      Allow to cool, and mix in some salt (no more half a teaspoon) in order to preserve the rice. 

5.      Allow to set a room temperate and serve topped with fresh coconut milk.

6.      For a more cooling summer dish, let sit in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours before serving
