Mung Beans & Sticky Black Rice Porridge

In indonesian we call this dish "Bubur Ketan Hitam & Kacang Hijau". This delicious dish usually consumed by night when the weather is a little bit cold, when it's raining outside or when you're still hungry in the late evening and we consume this as snack.
Mung beans themselves are very healthy. They contain iron and vitamines. They're very good for children, but too bad my children never want to taste this dish. Well maybe they just don't know it yet how it tastes. Maybe when they're a bit bigger when their curiousity about food developed they would taste this dish and perhaps will like it too. Finger-crossed..!

I usually cook this according to my feeling. But this recipe from my friend Ema is close to my version.
