BIKO (SWEET RICE PUDDING)



This my mom's recipe. 
Ingredients.
6 cups sweet rice (malagkit)
1 can coconut milk
4 cups brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

1. Soak sweet rice with water for 15 minutes.

2. Discard water and then add 3 cups of water.

3. Boil on medium heat until cooked. Set aside.

4. Cook brown sugar with coconut milk and vanilla until sticky to make a molasses.

5. Mix cooked sweet rice with syrup. Stir until thoroughly mixed.

Serve hot or room temperature.

*LATIK (Visayan) Ingredients:

1 can coconut milk
1/2 lb brown sugar

Mix in a pot and bring to a summer, stirring constantly until melted together and thickens.

*Latik- Filipino molasses/ sugar syrup
 
 

I love to scrape those rice crust at the bottom (dukot') of the pot and garnish it.

  4. I am so glad I found your blog. It has been such a long time since I had Biko. And since the passing away of my parents, no one else in our family knew how to make it. I can't wait to try out your recipe.

  5. I have never heard of "sweet rice." Is it actually sweet by itself or is it called that b/c it's mostly used in sweet dishes? This is a neat recipe!

  6. hi, V. You can buy sweet sticky rice in any Asian stores. Every Asian country have their own brands. I usually buy the Thailand one. Sweet rice is sticky and has a sweet undertone but can definetely be used in savory dishes just like the black rice. That's why i suggested you try this w/ your black rice coz we interchange or sometimes mix black rice w/ the sweet sticky rice to make this.

  10. Hi, Tess! I know what you mean. Mas lami' jud ang fresh coconut milk. I finally got a present from my Mom, gikan pa jud sa Cebu, "kudkuran". I was using it when it was new but i eventually got tired of doing it manually so i succumbed and went back to using the canned milk. Thanks for visiting my blog!

    1. Hi, i'm really not sure if it originated in Cebu. Ang alam ko bawat region/province may sariling version and they call them differently. Say for example Laguna province they call this sinukmani. Thanks for visiting;)
