Ginatang Halo-Halo recipe
Hello Readers! here's another good recipe for meryenda delicious and easy..
I used 3 types of sweet potato. If you have ube around you feel free to use it too I just don't have it at the moment.
218g white sweet potato
206g Orange sweet potato (traditional)
300g Purple sweet potato
6 pcs small Banana (feel free to use Saba if you have it around where you live)
1-20 oz can Jackfruit/Langka
90g Tapioca/sago (I use the one that only takes 5 minutes to cook)
1/2 cup Glutinous rice flour (for bill-bilo you can use galapong also)
1/4 cup water
1 tsp ube flavoring
1 drop of purple coloring
2 cans coconut milk
1 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup glutinous rice flour
1. Make the bill-bilo. Add 1 tsp of the ube flavoring into the glutinous rice flour and slowly add in the 1/4 cup water. If you find the mixture too dry try to add a drop of water at a time. Mix it until it forms almost like a dough. Take a pea size or larger of the mixture and roll it into a small circle /ball. Put it in the baking pan or any large container. Sprinkle it with cornstarch to prevent from sticking and make sure its not touching each other. If you have a non stick aluminum foil you can line it in the baking pan and that way you don't have to sprinkled cornstarch.
1.In a large pot(5qt) add 5 cups of water and bring it to a boil over medium high heat.
2. Peel, wash and cut all the sweet potatoes into cube or any shape you like and set it aside.
3. Cut each Langka into 8pcs squares
4. Peel and cut the banana into 1/2 inch thick circle
5.Once the water start boiling add in all the sweet potatoes and let it cook until its tender/soft.
6.Follow the Sago/Tapioca pearl and let it simmer for 5 minutes (if you using pre cook one add it
7.Once sago/Tapioca pearl is cook, add in the Bilo-Bilo. Try to add it one by one so that they won't stick to each other. Once its on in, give it a stir. and let it cook for 3 minutes. Then, follow langka.
8.Once langka is cook, add in the banana and cover for 2 minutes then add in the 2 cans of coconut milk and give it a stir. Cover it and let it simmer again for few minutes then add the sugar. Once sugar is dissolved add the thickener and stir it immediately. And cover it again for another 5 minutes.
Let it sit for 10-15 minutes before serving...Enjoy😊😊
