Black glutinous rice (pulut) ‘tong sui’

Somebody asked me about desserts during confinement and to be very honest I cannot find any suitable desserts because I personally am not a dessert lover. Therefore, the types of desserts that are suitable are mainly cakes or pancakes.
It is best not to eat fruits after a heavy meal because the fruits will be blocked in the intestines and cause a lot of gases.
Black pulut 'tong sui' is suitable for confinement because it is heaty

100 gm black glutinous rice
100 gm dried longan
Rock sugar

Wash the rice and transfer to a pot of boiling water.
Boil for about 10 minutes.
Add the longan
Reduce the heat and simmer until the rice is cooked
Add the rock sugar
