Bubor Kachang Hijau (Green Bean w Coconut Milk)

Made this today, it's been raining for the past 4 days in the Rockies and I am trapped at home with the little one. Day 5 at home with Daddy in St. Louis working....2 more days to see Hub!
This bubor brought back countless childhood memories....I was literally fighting back tears while eating it...I hope to make this for my little one when he is older so that he too will have wonderful memories of his childhood when he grows up...

What U Need:
1 cup green beans
1/2 cup sago pearls
About 1/2 piece of gula melaka/ palm sugar (half of that cylinder)
About 1 1/2 cup coconut milk
5 cups or more water
Some sugar to taste
Pinch of salt
1 small slice of ginger (optional)
1 knot pandan leaves (screwpine)

What To Do:
  1. Boil green bean, ginger & pandan leaves in water until soft, add more water if it gets too dry
  2. Once the beans are soft, add sago, sugar & salt.
  3. Boil till the sago becomes clear. Add the rest of the ingredients.
  4. Boil till gula melaka melts, adjust taste accordingly.
  5. Serve!
Note: I like it more lemak (thick) and also the taste of gula melaka stronger. You can always adjust it to your own liking...
