Bubur Ketan Hitam Recipe (Black Glutinous Rice Pudding) and Indonesia Eats on Very

Bubur Pulut HitamIn Indonesia, especially Java it’s known as Bubur Ketan Hitam.  In places with heavy Malay influences (such as Sumatra , Malaysia and Singapore) this is called Bubur Pulut Hitam.  Meanwhile in Bali (even though it’s still in Indoensia), it’s given a name Bubur Injin.

Windy and cold weather is here now. I am not ready yet for winter since we had a really short summer in Manitoba this year. Also, it was said that Manitoba has a chance to have more rains than any other provinces in Canada. This bubur ketan hitam is perfect for cold days.

October the 25th, the Indonesian students group of Winnipeg presents an event “Indonesian Exotic Cultural Afternoon: Explore Indonesian Street Vendors”. In this event, we will have similar things to the Indonesian Food Festival 2009. However, we won’t serve a big meal, we will serve savory and sweet snacks just like the street vendors in Indonesia. This event is also tribute to Sumatra’s earthquake that was just happened about a week ago.

Do you still remember about the Indonesian Food Festival 2009 in Winnipeg where my food pictures were featured on the Winnipeg Free Press? You may remember my nasi uduk’s picture and recipe. Those also have been featured on A great website if you love online-shopping, especially Asian stuffs. Thank you to Emon and Welly for emailing me, I appreciate your effort before featuring my blog’s contains.

  1. This looks outstanding. I just saw some black sweet rice at the market the other day and was wondering what I could use it in.

    1. I believe this dessert is well-known in many different Southeast Asian countries beside Indonesia such as Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam and Thailand 🙂 So I’m not surprised you find it at a Thai restaurant. Sama-sama. Semoga suka dengan resepnya.
