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.
