  • 1 pandan leaf
  • 3/4 cup black glutinous rice
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar

*Black glutinous rice and pandan leaves can be found in Asian markets and in the ethnic food section of better grocery stores.

This is a unique breakfast that Muslims enjoy during Ramadan. Breakfast (Suhoor) must be eaten very early in the morning since Muslims fast during daylight hours the entire month of Ramadan.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank Bennett for this recipe.
