Author: Vanjo Merano


  • 2 cups glutinous rice aka sticky rice or malagkit
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 4 cups coconut milk
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  • Combine the sticky rice and water in a rice cooker and cook until the rice is ready (we intentionally combined lesser amount of water than the usual so that the rice will not be fully cooked)
  • While the rice is cooking, combine the coconut milk with brown sugar and salt in a separate pot and cook in low heat until the texture becomes thick. Stir constantly.
  • Once the rice is cooked and the coconut milk-sugar mixture is thick enough, add the cooked rice in the coconut milk and sugar mixture then mix well. Continue cooking until all the liquid evaporates (but do not overcook).
  • Scoop the cooked biko and place it in a serving plate then flatten the surface.
  • Share and Enjoy!
