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.

YOU NEED…….

* 2 cups glutinous rice
* 2 cups water
* 1 3/4 cups brown sugar
* 2 1/2 cups coconut milk

HOW TO…….

* Rinse the rice until water runs clear.
* In a pot, boil the rice and water. ( You can also use a rice cooker to do this procedure.)
* Bring to a boil, stir then cook in low heat for about 10 minutes. Set aside.
* In another pot, combine coconut milk and brown sugar. Bring to a boil.
* Add the cooked rice. Cook in low heat white stirring constantly until the rice mixture is almost dry and * very sticky. (about 30-40 minutes)
* Remove from heat.
* Transfer to a serving tray. Flatten the surface.
* You can top with latik (optional). Enjoy and Guten Appetit!
