Biko Mangga

Sweet Rice Cake Flavored with Ripe Mango

Recipe by :  Ariel Jasa,  Mandaluyong City, Philippines

Biko mangga is a ripe mango flavored sweet rice cake that I just thought of cooking together.  I was thinking we can love suman and mangga, why not do biko and mangga?

It started when I had a lot of mangoes getting ripe all at the same time, so I had to think of other ways to use them.  I sliced a couple, put them in the blender and added to the biko I was making. Not sure if it would work,  but it did-- so good, my family loved it.

Come try making my Bico Mangga and bring it to your next party gathering.


  • Glutinous rice (malagkit)
  • Ripe mangoes
  • Coconut cream or kakang-gata

  • 1/2 kilo  Glutinous rice (malagkit)
  • 3 cups Coconut water (2nd squeeze)
  • 3 pieces Ripe mango
  • 1 cup  Water
  • 3 cups Coconut cream
  • 1/4 kilo White sugar    

1   Cook the glutinous rice like how you would the regular steamed white rice or cook in rice cooker with 3 cups coconut water. Fluff and cool for a little bit. 

2   Peel and cut the 2 mangoes around the pit, slice into chunks, add 1 cup water and put in a blender.

3   Bring the coconut cream and water to a boil, add the blended mango and the sugar.
