Toasted M o n g o B e a n Coconut Risotto...

Hearty bowl of sweetened coconut milk risotto with toasted mongo beans or better known as "ginantang monggo." Mom used to make this on a rainy day and it fed a lot of people. We had guests during those days and they wanted something hot and locally inspired since they come from the States. Well if you have fresh coconut that you can squeeze out the real coconut milk from, white sugar, sticky rice or "malagkit" and some mongo beans, allyou have left is the desire to make this delicious dessert. Mom toasted the mongo beans until really brown in color, roughly pounded it with a rolling pin and folded in the risotto mixture. This method can is also applicable to adding yellow corn and it would then be called-ginatang mais. Love it...
