Glutenous Black Rice Recipe (Resep Bubur Ketan Hitam)
I decided to write about Glutenous Black Rice Recipe or Resep Bubur Ketan Hitam in Indonesian. I remember when I wrote about the Glutenous Black Rice Cake Recipe, Mbak Ajen commented about the Glutenous Black Rice Recipe.
When I was in Liberia, I can’t find this black rice there, even though I really wanted to cook one. The hardest thing to live abroad is to remembered the name of the ingredients we used. For example this glutenous black rice often called as sticky rice also. And Kacang Hijau is Mung Beans. 😀 Okay… enough with the long intro…
