This year I found several Pinoy food bloggers around the world which led me to a group called Kulinarya Cooking Club which aims to promote Filipino Food.
This month’s theme hosted by Adora from Adora’s Box and Diona from Tita Flips is “White Food.” For my first Kulinarya entry I chose something that I haven’t prepared before and a dessert that I’ve craved since last month – Ginataang Mais.
Ginataan means food cooked with gata (coconut milk) which is extracted from grated coconut milk mix with warm water. You will find various Filipino desserts made with coconut milk ginataang bilo-bilo, ginataan halo-halo, Bicol express, and adobo sa gata to name a few.
This dish suits the bed weather Manila is experiencing right now because of Bagyong Egay. Ginataang Mais is best eaten warm.
Ginataang Mais (Corn and Sticky Rice Pudding with Coconut Milk)
- 1 cup glutinous rice
- 4 cups water
- 1 can whole corn kernel, 150 fl.oz.
- 1 can coconut milk, 14 fl.oz or 3 cups fresh coconut milk
- 1 can coconut cream, 150ml
- ¾ cup sugar
Combine 4 cups of water and glutinous rice in a pot, once it boils lower the heat. Add corn kernels, coconut milk, coconut cream and sugar let it simmer for 20 minutes and continuously giving it a good mix with your wooden spoon till you get the right pudding consistency you prefer.
