Bubur Kacang Hijau

bubur kacang hijau


From the moment my mom knows that I’m pregnant, she has told me to drink air kacang hijau (boiled mung bean water) because she said it’s good and beneficial for the baby. After I did some research, apparently mung bean really is nutritious. So instead of just drinking the water (from the boiled mung beans), I went a bit further and made this bubur kacang hijau (mung bean porridge).

Bubur kacang hijau is definitely one comforting dish, suitable for snacks as well as desserts. It can also be served either hot or cold. While some people like to mix the coconut milk straight away into the dish but I prefer to add the coconut milk just before I eat the meal. I treat the coconut milk like sauce and of course, everyone has different preference for his sauce.

If you’re in need for a comforting dish, this would be the one. Otherwise, you can try my bubur ketan hitam (black glutinous rice) recipe here.
