Soak the mung beans over night and boil in 1 litre water, with pandan leaves, till very soft and almost disintegrating.. Boil half a litre water separately and cook rice in it (wash the rice first).. Keep separate.. Now add coconut milk to the beans and continue cooking... Add sugar and cook a bit more.. To serve scoop out the porridge and top with rice.. Or, you could mix the rice in the cooking pot as well. Served cold and hot.. Add plantain/ sweet potatoes for extra flavors...
