  • evaporated milk or fresh milk for topping
  • dried fish "tuyo" / dried anchovies optional


  • In a medium pot, heat water over high heat to boil.
  • When the water is boiling add tablea/cacao/cocoa powder until it dissolves.
  • Add glutinous rice and set to medium heat. Let simmer while stirring occasionally.
  • When rice is cooked/soft. Add sugar and let it simmer for 2-3 more minutes.

  1. Another way of making this is to not add the sugar yet after the rice is cooked. By doing this, it gives the person who will eat it the option on how sweet they want the porridge is.
  2. To re-heat, just add milk and place in the microwave.
