Bur Bur Pulut Hitam (Black Glutinous Rice Porridge Gelato)

Black glutinous rice has been a staple ingredient in our Asian culture and its most popular form is a dessert named Bur Bur Pulut Hitam or Black Glutinous Rice Porridge, often topped with a serving of salted coconut milk.  We aim to celebrate the tradition of Singapore’s diverse culture with a gelato inspiration from a dessert close to our Nonya roots.
