In Malaysia and Singapore this snack is served warm or chilled. “Pulut hitam,” the tough grained sticky rice, literally translates as “black rice.” While teaching at the Culinary Institute of America I placed this on the breakfast menu as a hot cereal, garnished with fresh mango and coconut milk. Surprisingly, the dish developed a following that swore by it, reveling in their newfound breakfast every day at 6:00 AM.
