Ingredients

  • 1 cup glutinous rice flour
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 3 cans (13.5 ounces each) coconut milk
  • 2 (about 4 cups) large camote, peeled and cubed
  • 2 (about 2 cups) saba bananas, peeled and cubed
  • 1 cup cooked sago
  • 1 cup jackfruit strips
  • 1 cup coconut cream
  • 1 cup sugar

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, combine glutinous rice flour and 1/2 cup of the water into a pliable dough. If the dough is too sticky, add more flour; if too crumbly, add a little bit more water. 
  • Using the palms of your hands, form dough into smooth balls the size of marbles.  Arrange shaped dough balls in a single layer on a baking sheet or shallow plate and cover with a cloth until ready to use.
  • In a large pot over medium heat, combine coconut milk and the remaining 2 cups water. Bring to a simmer.
  • Add camote and cook for about 3 to 5 minutes or until almost tender. 
  • Add bananas, sago, and jackfruit and cook for about 3 to 5 minutes. 
  • Add glutinous rice balls and cook for about 3 to 5 minutes or until they start to float on top.
  • Add sugar and stir until dissolved. 
  • Add coconut cream and continue to cook for until bananas and camote are tender but not falling apart and the ginataan thickens to desired consistency. Serve hot or cold.
