Diana Chan's Bubur Sum Sum (Coconut Rice Porridge)

{{totalReview}}
Bubur Sum Sum is a traditional dessert from Indonesia that is well-loved by locals and tourists alike. This sweet treat of coconut milk and rice flour, is cooked with pandan for added fragrance and flavor. The velvety smooth coconut rice porridge is creamy with a subtle hint of salt, and just the right amount of sweetness from the palm sugar syrup. Nothing like a well-balanced dessert to end your meal on a sweet note.
