The Mishap

This is Wild Rice:

And this is Pulut Hitam:This, is a farking huge bowl of pulut hitam cooked in chicken broth and carrots because I thought it was wild rice (Palm TX placed there for size comparison):

Moral of the story: Beware of strange things you might find in my kitchen. They might not be what you think. I had thought this was wild rice that a friend left in my kitchen when she moved to Chicago. Apparently, no, this was pulut hitam my mom left in my kitchen a year ago.

This goof-up ranks up there with the green nasi lemak experience and the expired food incident. (with a lot of sugar, pandan essense and coconut milk, I was however able to salvage this into an acceptable dessert. Now I just have to convince my American girlfriend the carrots are meant to be there. Shhh...)

Dear friend from Chicago/Ront:
I have never cooked wild rice or pulut hitam, nor have I ever handled them uncooked. I am a wild rice virgin.
Hence, they looked the same to me.
