  • 1/2 cup Mung beans
  • 2 1/2 cups coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup sticky rice washed (malagkit)
  • 6 to 7 tablespoons sugar


  • Heat a pan and put-in the Mung beans.
  • Toast the Mung beans until brown.
  • Turn-off heat and let the mung beans cool down.
  • Crack the toasted mung beans using a mortar and pestle (almires). Set aside.
  • Heat a cooking pot and pour-in coconut milk. Let boil.
  • Add the sticky rice and Mung beans then stir. Cook in low heat for 15 to 20 minutes while stirring once in a while, or until the coconut milk is almost absorbed.
  • Add sugar then stir.
  • Turn off heat and transfer to a serving plate.
  • Serve! You may serve this either hot or cold. I like having this cold with some extra coconut milk on top.
  • Share and enjoy!
