Pandan (Screw-pine) Rice Pudding

Would you ever thought that its possible to make a dessert from leftover cooked white rice? I'm listening. Tell me loudly or whisper in my ears please. I actually never thought I can do it. But when inventive juice oozes out when you least expect, you better put the juice to good use. So I did. Pandan/screwpine leaves from my garden were juiced and poured into the cooked with some water white rice (Minced Lamb Potato Fried Rice, Ghee Rice & Tomato Rice). Then, can you please follow up as per said in this recipe. Vouch, this dessert (Mango Coconut Jelly & White Fungus Ginkgo Nuts) is simply irresistible, more importantly, we should be proud for saving cooked white rice

1 cup cooked white rice
10 pandan leaves (blend or process with 1/4 cup to extract juice)
Green coloring (optional)
Thick coconut milk - as needed
Gula melaka/palm sugar - as needed. Simmer with water for a thick syrup
A pinch of salt

Cook rice with enough water for a thick mixture, but with some grains still as it is.
Add pandan juice, coloring and salt.
Remove from stove, tip into a mould or tray.
Let it cool down before placing in the fridge to be set.
Bring out and cut into slices.
Then, drizzle with coconut milk and palm sugar syrup
Don't forget to trend alongside "cook with nava-k" on every other social media please!!
