So, today, I wanted my kids to try something I used to have when I was a kid… champorado!
Champorado is a chocolate rice porridge usually eaten for breakfast in many Filipino homes… it’s usually eaten with a dash of fresh milk (I personally preferred powered milk though) and tuyo flakes (popular dried fish).
Well, they had a few spoonfuls before asking for some cereal 😅
Here’s the recipe I used:
- 5 cups water
- 1 cup malagkit rice (sticky rice)
- 5 tsokolate tablea (cocoa powder would do)
- 1/2 cup brown sugar (I used coconut sugar)
- In a large pot, boil water.
- Add rice to boiling water… keep stirring.
- Add the tablea and sugar.
- Mix constantly until thick.
- Serve with milk and tuyo flakes on top.
*We put a little ginger in the oil when we cook tuyo to help lessen the fishy smell 😊
