NotesIs this a snack or dessert? Well folks in the Asian countries they don't serve sweets after a dinner, but mostely mid-day, however if you want to serve Bubor Pulut Hitam as a dessert go right ahead. The first time my wife and I ate Bubur Pulut Hitam was in Malaysia and this is indeed a popular Malay sweet. Selamat Makan!
