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.

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.
