πŸ‡΅πŸ‡­”BIKO ITIM” TOPPED WITH MOZZARELLA CHEESE /BLACK GLUTINOUS RICE

πŸ‘©β€πŸ³With this, it reminds me of my late Nanay (mother) who used to cook this during, all saints day, fiesta, Christmases and birthdays and all types of kakanin in the Philippines. That gives the native delicacy an infinite number of enjoyable possibilities. Instead of “Latik” or coconut caramel, I opted for Mozzarella Cheese. Have a try Folks, my first time using black glutinous rice or “itim na malagkit”. I saw this in the Philippines before, just here in Vienna, the Chinese are selling it here.

YOU NEED…….

800g Black Glutinous Rice

Ginger, you can omit it if you don’t like to add

1Liter Coconut Milk

a cup of Brown Sugar or less if you want

250g Mozzarella Cheese

DADA’S BIKO

My hubby’s version of Biko!
I was craving for this few days ago and he promised he will do it for me. Said and done!
He was not so happy how it turned out but he said next time he will do it like his mother recipe they called it “ENKIWAR” (Ilocano version), but that’s another entry:-)

As you could see no “Latik” on top just plain biko. With this it reminds me my late nanay who used to cooked this during, fiesta, pasko and birthdays and all types of kakanin in the Philippines. That gives the native delicacy an infinite number of enjoyable possibilities.
