Champorado warms our heart

I love this weather. It’s cold and rainy. All I want is to drink hot tea, curl up in bed and read. But this momma have no time for some “me time” curling up on bed and reading.

Regardless of that, I did something for the first time in my life. I cooked champorado!

Champorado or chocolate rice porridge is easy to make. It’s made of four ingredients: malagkit (glutinous rice), cocoa powder, water and sugar. BUT I am a total fail when cooking without the exact measurements so I bought a ready to cook champorado. I know that’s cheating but don’t go there. Just give me this, okay?


Una has been bugging me to cook champorado ever since she saw the box last week. It’s been warm for the past few days and I was not in the mood to eat champorado. But today, today is perfect. Champorado on a raindy day is perfect. Not only does it warms our tummy but it warms our soul. For some reason champorado gives that nostalgic feeling that makes me miss home.

How about you? Does champorado have that same heartwarming effect?

    Yay! I love champorado!!! The last time I made some, I was able to empty the pot a day later coz I got no help from anyone! LOL. Di kasi mahilig mga kasama ko dito eh. Hmp!

    Anyway, you use sweet rice pala? I only use the regular rice, that’s what I grew up with. Using sweet rice sounds interesting. I might try that next time! :)
