A huge part of Kalakhang Maynila (Metro Manila) is flooded and so #WalangPasok is trending on Twitter. The odd thing is that there is no storm at the moment, only enhanced Southwest monsoon. So, with the kids stuck at home (well, this is a daily thing in our home coz our kids are homeschooled as you probably already know), we're thinking of ways to make our stay memorable and warm.
What could better perk our cold days and nights than a bowl of pure tablea de cacao champorado (chocolate porridge) paired with dried fish or tuyo. Here is our recipe for this infamous food pairing --
What to buy:
Mama Lita's 100% Pure Organic Tablea de Cacao (chocolate tablets)
1 cup Malagkit (sticky rice) with 1 cup of regular rice or two cups of regular rice
1 can of evaporated milk
Brown or muscovado sugar
A few pieces of tuyo (dried fish)
1. Boil the malagkit with rice or just two cups of rice. The measured water is according to how thick you would want the champorado to be.
2. Fry the dried fish while the rice is boiling.
3. Add three tablets of Mama Lita's 100% Pure Organic Tablea de Cacao into the now soft rice.
4. Wait for the chocolate tablets to melt (this only takes 1-2 minutes) then turn off the stove.
5. Serve while hot. Add sugar to taste.
