Filipino Sweet Sticky Rice ( Biko )

This is my version of Biko - Filipino dessert item.

Instead of using the white sticky rice I used the violet sticky rice because it is more flavorful and visually stunning. This is so simple to make and requires no special tools which makes it an easy undertake for someone who doesn't yet have a properly-equipped kitchen.


1½ cups violet sticky rice
1 can coconut milk
½ cup coconut cream
2 cups muscovado sugar

Pour  half a cup coconut milk and 2 cups of water into a pot and simmer over a medium heat. Add in the rice, cover and cook. stir frequently to prevent burning. adjust heat if necessary.
preheat oven to 350℉.

Pour the remaining coconut milk and coconut cream in a heavy saucepan and simmer. Remove from heat. Add sugar and stir until melted.

When rice is fully cooked spoon into lightly buttered individual cups or in a muffin pans. Pour on top the liquid mixture and bake for 35 minutes. cool slightly and serve with a cup of freshly brewed coffee.

This recipe will give you a crunchy rice edges.
