大麦甜粥 Sweet Wheat Porridge Dessert (Gandum)

After seeing 阿豐 麥粥, I wanted to make this dessert so much for my family. I didn't expect I would have a hard time looking for this white wheat in NTUC, Cold Storage & Sheng Siong. In the end, I bought it from the Market provision stall this morning.

My mom helped with the cooking of the wheat, while I take my afternoon nap after the flu medication. I do not have the exact water & sugar measurement, as mom did the job. We use our favourite Tanyu pot to do the cooking. You may refer to the guide below.

200g White Wheat (Gandum)
4 Pandan Leaves, knotted
200ml Concentrated Coconut Milk
Sugar to taste (or 100g Rock sugar)
Water (1.5 Liter)


  1. Soak wheat in warm water.
  2. When wheat is soft, pour away the soaking water
  3. Put the wheat & water into the Tanyu pot and cook till wheat turn soft and open
  4. Add in the amount of sugar to your own taste
  5. Put in pandan leave & coconut milk and cook for another 10-20 mins
