Binatog sa Gata (Corn with Coconut Milk)



"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!

Ingredients:
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

Procedure:

  • 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.

Pinaltak in bicol. However, me extra procedure kami nyan. Once na ang mais mejo luto na, hinuhugasan sya kasama ang lime (calcium hydroxide). And it is cooked purely in coconut milk.
