Filipino Ube Mango Sticky Rice (Ube Mango Biko)

Mango sticky rice is one of my favorite foods of Thailand, aside from Phad Thai. Here, I’ve given my spin on this famous dessert - by incorporating Filipino flavours into it. Ube, our purple yam used most widely in Halo-Halo, tints the glutinous rice a vibrant purple and adds a sweet nutty flavor to this Filipino Biko (rice cakes). It’s also topped with crunchy latik (coconut curds) and drizzled with creamy coconut sauce for a super sweet lick. Yum!

  2. Make the latik

    • In a sauce pan over medium heat, pour the coconut cream and allow to simmer, stir until it thickens.
    • Make sure to keep on stirring as you see the oil starts to separate, make sure to also scrape the bottom of the pan to prevent them from scorching. 
    • Keep on cooking until the solids turn golden brown. 
    • Strain the latik mixture, and set the oil and the Latik aside.

    | Please pay close attention when making the latik, because it goes from perfectly golden brown to burnt really quickly

  3. Make the biko

    • Half-cook the rice in a pot with water and a pc of pandan leaf (about 7 to 8 mins)
    • In a separate pan, combine coconut milk, sugar, ube halaya, ube extract, and salt. Stir until well blended.
    • Stir in the rice and cook. Make sure that the ube mixture coats the rice completely.
    • Keep on cooking until the mixture turns really sticky and thick.
