Biko with Latik
by Reggie Aspiras/Aling Nene

1 k malagkit, cook in rice cooker using the Mount Fuji method?water line is same level as the first line or bend of the middle finger; do not overcook
1/2 k pinipig
Once the rice has mostly absorbed the liquid, sprinkle pinipig on top of malagkit; cover and leave rice cooker until done (light of rice cooker turns green).

1 k coconut milk, first extraction
1 k golden brown sugar

On a nonstick wok, cook kakang gata gently over low heat, mixing gently for about 20 minutes.

Add brown sugar; cook, stirring until mixture comes to a boil.

Add malagkit with pinipig.

Keep mixing over low heat.

Tip:  Ang masarap na biko ay makunat. Ang sekreto ng biko ay ang paghalo… pag mabigat na haluin, lumalaban, makunat, hanguin na ito.

Transfer to coconut leaf-lined bilao.

Top with latik.

In a saucepan, pour 2 cups kakang gata.
