"Binatog" is a popular filipino snack, wherein white corn kernels are boiled and cooked until they burst out of their skin. Often served with a bit ounce of evaporated milk, sugar and grated coconut as toppings.
But the recipe i'm sharing here is a more delicious variation because it is cooked with coconut milk instead of just plain water. Can you imagine the taste? It's creamy and sweet yes!
3 cups corn kernels
1 liter water
3 cups coconut milk
1/2 cup sugar or to taste
1/2 tsp salt
1 pandan leaf
- In a pot, cook the corn kernels with water. Add salt. Let boil and cook until very soft and kernels are bursting. Add more water if needed.
- When the corn is cooked and water almost dry, add the coconut milk, sugar and pandan leaf. Let boil for about 10 minutes to cook the coconut milk.
- Serve warm.
