This recipe is from my late uncle from Bicol who inspired me to try it. These two versions are totally different. The first one I added small potatoes, tapioca pearl, banana, corn kernels with brown sugar and bata de coco of course cooked in coconut milk. While the other one is more on guava pure guava with ginger, salt and brown sugar but not too sweet. Then I ate it with cold rice, the way my uncle used to eat it served as viand for him. But for me, I love my version as a dessert or for in-between not as viand.
