High Fiber "GINATAANG TOTONG"

Eat all you can...Guilty Free Merienda..

Mahilig ka ba sa kakanin o matamis na pagkain? tulad ng mga ginataan o mga malagkit ,puto,kalamay o bibingka..mga halimbawa lang yan na paborito ng Pinoy..

Gusto nyo bang kumain ng mga kinakain ko? guilty free diet para maiwasan ang tumaba ng sobra o nag aalala sa SUGAR..kase sugar is the most reason kaya tumataba ang tao.including oily food ..


Try my Ginataang Totong in healthier version, kase it's high in Fiber , Glutinous rice is 
usually the ingredients of making ginataang totong with the sugar and coconut milk plus the grinded toasted mung beans..



Kumakain naman po ako ng kakanin o malagkit rice..kaso as in very rare or bibihira..Tikim lang ang alam ko..pero mahilig ako sa ginataang bilo bilo or totong..kapag napakatamis hindi nyo po ako mapapakain...when i cooked for myself .i eat a lot ..kase sure ko ang mga sangkap ,means guilty free..









INGREDIENTS...

Of course you use the original ingredients 
like Sticky Rice at Sugar of your Choice

in my case , Figure conscious kase ako at health conscious den..
this what ingredients i used..


Choose Whole Grain Rice..Mugi Rice or Whole grain Oats 
or just used instant OATMEAL
or maybe BROWN RICE combine some amount of Sticky rice..para di dry


MY RECIPE here
2 cups of MUGI RICE / Whole Grain Oats 
3 cups COCONUT MILK
1 to 2 cups COCONUT SUGAR 
Enough WATER to cook mugi rice

you can add oats or tapioca pearl para medyo jellatinous



METHOD how to cook

1..Wash rice 2 times and drain ...get your cooking pot and put enough amount of water 
3 cups water then put the rice ..cover and cook slowly in medium low heat.




2.check it sometimes syempre at haluin..obserbahan kung naluluto ang rice
add more water kung matigas pa..then ilagay ang 1 pack ng COCONUT MILK..
pakuluan ng isang kulo ..



Kung gustong haluan ng TAPIOCA PEARL...ibuhos sabay ng Rice 



3..stir constantly ..para di manikit sa ilalim ..check kung malambot na ang rice at tapioca , haluin mabuti ,lagyan ng tubig or coconut milk as it needed..

4..ibuhos ang binusang dinurog na munggo..para maluto ang munggo



after nyong maobserbahang medyo malambot na ang rice ibuhos ang  natirang 2 cups na GATA...haluin at 
pasubuhan ng kaunti at saka ilagay ang sapat na dami ng ASUKAL according sa inyong panlasa..




Kung gustong Magata ang niluluto huwag gumamit ng tubig ..use more coconut milk
i used 3 package of coconut milk with more than 3 cups and some amount of water /3 cups maybe
and adjust Sugar ..
used any sugar kung walang coconut sugar,medyo mahal po ang coconut sugar...mahal ang sugar na pang healthy diet ..ganun po talaga..





meanwhile...TIKMAN ang niluluto ...kapag okay na..then READY TO SERVE na..
eat while it's warm...

ENJOY..

Chocolate Palitaw Recipe

Palitaw na chocolate ang lasa na may chocolate den sa loob..mukhang masarap di ba?
kase ako personally sarap na sarap dito, many times ko na itong niluluto kase addictive..

Sounds not common ? do you know in Japan it is common usually you can see them in many store
especially in Valentines Day..i love this sweet food but it's not Palitaw . it is MOCHI CHOCO ..
honestly i'm not a Mochi lover or but because of this, i crave a lot on Valentines day only..
and know what, it has chocolate stuffed too ,that's why it's very special and yummy..

I decided to make it in our Filipino Kakanin version ,which is bilo bilo or Palitaw 

Now you can imagine , that it is very easy to cook .right?










INGREDIENTS..




136 grams of GLUTINOUS RICE FLOUR 
6 tbsp coconut Milk
1 tbsp warm water 
4 tbsp COCOA POWDER/ you can use sweetened cocoa
and any Chocolate Candies for stuffing /i used TRUFFLES


Let's Start cooking
The PROCEDURE 

1..First is you need a mixing bowl..Combine glutinous rice flour and Cocoa..stir until well combined..

2..Pour 6 tbsp coconut milk and 1 tbsp warm water..mix until thickens and form like a dough 
adjust liquid if needed..not too sticky but not too dry..then massage it with your clean hands .

3..Get ready for your filling,cut into small size,big filling might run out while we boil the palitaw and of course , get ready your boiling water 


truffles 


4..then we 're going to make a palitaw ball..with a clean hands..grab one tbs scoop of the dough 
make a round shaped using your palm and flattened to fill the chocolate .and seal it to cover the filling and slowly roll it it again in your palm to form a ball ..and continue the method..

And carefully press the palitaw balls a bit , we don't want our palitaw to be like like bilo bilo..

5..Now if boiling water is ready, drop carefully the Palitaw Choco one by one 
once you see them floats ,it's a sign that their are cooked ..
remove it and place in a dish with grated coconut..

6..and now merienda is done, eat warm or cool completely ..
serve with muscovado sugar or anything you like to sprinkle ..
because of the chocolate filling , i think you don't need anything ..just a cup of warm tea is enough..

ENJOY, hope you try it at home and serve with your friends and visitors..

but cook the onion very well ,most kids hate onions..





I have problem with my daughter when it comes eating vegetables , she only knew Ginisang Bitsuelas , patatas, repolyo , and i noticed when i cooked vegetables with meat ,she eats..
so i follow my Princess, i cooked dish just to satisfies the craving of my daughter and of course my hubby too..with balance menu..

Talking about my hubby ,i have to be careful about his diet ,he is not getting younger , especially of blood pressure , so if possible i served him healthier dish..different dish in a small amount..
it's matrabaho but , it's my job to take care of their diet..Japanese way of eating meal served in small amount and variety of dishes..next time i'll try to share ,what Japanese usually eats in their meal..

Anyway ,i want to share this Recipe TALONG SISIG..i just realized this dish can convince my daughter to eat TALONG..yeah ..job accomplished 
...she loves it..for my hubby , i served a very small amount..

the remaining sisig is for me ..enough for 3 people servings..so ako yung tataba ?


Let's Get Started..

I have 3 Japanese eggplant here..small size .if you have long size, just use 2 Pieces..
or use more eggplant if you will serve for a big family ..

First step ,i have to wash the Talong then cut or slice in small pieces..to make a sisig looks..
you can cook it alone with out adding any meat ..but as i said my daughter can't eat vegetables with out meat..okay?



Soak in salt water for a while while preparing other mixture or cut the eggplant later..



List of the INGREDIENTS..



3 small size Japanese eggplant
100 grams Minced Pork or chicken/ blanched into 2 minutes/you can skip this
2 piece of chicken liver/ blanched into 2 minutes /you can also marinate this with vinegar or calamansi with salt and pepper..

2. in the same skillet add 1/2 tbsp oil and fry minced meat add 1 pice garlic for aroma , season with salt and pepper , after a few seconds put in the sliced chicken liver along with chopped garlic

3..pan fry them together until become toasted ..

4..now we can add cooked eggplant into the meat..add  chopped onion too

Then remove from the heat ...or transfer into a mixing bowl.

5..We 're going to add 1 tbsp soy sauce.2 tbsp vinegar ,add more if want more sour taste..

and lastly put in the fresh chopped red onion..mix it well..




Now, you can ready to serve it in a dish and add some flavorful seasoning you like
like mayonnaise and calamansi..adding chicharon is either nice too..

6.But then. when you say SISIG,usually it serves in a Hot Sizzling Plate..
if you have it..get it and serve sisig like a pro..serve Talong Sisig that no one knows ..right?

7..heat your plate in burner in medium low heat..add 1 tbsp of butter and 1/2 tbsp of sesame oil
throw one dried or fresh chili or maybe crusted garlic..





8..when butter melts, pour the Talong Sisig mixture ..arrange it well ,then while it's hot .crack one egg on top if your'e allergy to egg..skip the egg..




and last drizzled with mayonnaise ...and then it's Done

Ready to serve...use pot holder when holding the sizzling plate..

sliced Lemon and put in the side of Sisig to have good presentation..


cook the egg very well if you not like the yolk in raw form 


with mayonnaise or chicharon on top is also perfect..




if you just eat it alone..presentation is not needed..but ..but.. remember..

it's also stress relieving ..eat good food ,neat environment ,and surrounded with positivity ..

Maja de Kalabasa



slightly pan fry sweet desiccated coconut on top and latik if you have 




Traditionally,Maja Blanca is made of with sweet corn and topped with latik or toasted desiccated coconut ,others adding shredded cheese ,
when you like something , you tend to create various taste or try another flavor.

Since Squash is healthy , we know some kids don't like vegetables ,just like my daughter, if you don't create something looks yummy ,she won't eat it..or don't serve her a dish with a sliced of squash in her plate..trust me, she'll never touch it..

so to find flavors that suits my daughter's taste..i tried to cheat her just to eat pumpkin..
like mixing it in a cake ,ice cream , muffin or any thing that she thinks it's not taste squash but she knew it is a squash..

anyway, i just feel bored today just because of the weather this week...rain yesterday,rain tomorrow ..and rain the next day..

yeah. i love squash even it's only steamed or boiled, remember it's good for the eyes.

okay.okay,i think i talk too much..

Let me share what i made today, i had a left over Squash ..salad? miso soup? muffin? chiffon? ice cream? but no ingredients available ..
well , i check my ref... coconut milk is there .so i decided to make a kakanin..

i remember the Maja Blanca Kalabasa way back 2013 , when i first tried it ,and it tastes really really good..


INGREDIENTS..




1 cup cooked squash and smashed 
3 cups of coconut milk or more 
or 3 package 120 ml each times 3 equals 360 ml 
1 cup Cornstarch
1 cup Condensed Milk or add more if you like sweeter taste 
 i used COCONUT SUGAR 1 cup ..just to make it healthier

Toppings
grated cheese
latik
or toasted coconut

SIMPLE SUGGESTION .....

If You like Creamy and Soft Maja Kalabasa lessen the Pumpkin like 1/2 cup only 
or lessen the cornstarch like 1/2 cup only 
but me?? , i want a dense but soft and melt in your mouth Maja kalabasa ..not creamy one..
pure coconut milk without water makes melt in your mouth..i assure you..

adding grated cheese into the mixture gives also a better taste..

So water is not needed here or fresh milk... adding this is your decision ..
adjust or add if you like...all recipes are depends on you and preferences ..what you believe and what you traditionally do..do it your way..
and this is my method... i love coconut milk than cows milk..period..

"You can Cook Coconut Milk first if you want ."
before adding the cornstarch..
but in my method what i have learned in my high school days,and from the book i've had read..
they mixed up all ingredients and then begin to cook..
so if you believe yourself , follow your way and i will do my method..okay..

Before you start make sure the Squash are ready. boiled and smashed 




Procedure ...

1..prepare 2 mixing bowl
first bowl ....
combine 1 cup of coconut milk and sugar or condensed milk , mix it well to dissolved sugar ..

now add mashed pumpkin here...mix until smooth and become yellow color...then set aside

2 .second bowl 
put 2 cups of coconut milk , and 1  cornstarch in a bowl
slowly stir with wire whisk to dissolve the cornstarch ..

3. when both bowl are completed , get your skillet or frying pan .




Now Skillet is ready, get a strainer and strain the first bowl of kalabasa ...





4.. now ready to pour the second bowl of dissolved cornstarch..stir for a few seconds..
i mean combine both mixture 1st bowl and 2nd bowl into the skillet ..after you finish strained the squash mixture..

5 .then bring it to heat..turn on medium low fire, and stir the mixture constantly
until thickens, about 7 to 8 minutes..depends on your cooking ware and heat and the amount of your mixture.






6..don't over cook .. try to taste if cornstarch is cooked ..
so when maja kalabasa thickened and cooked , turn off the heat  , pour on your preserve moulder ..
allow to cool down before slicing ..or eat while it's warm.. 



then flip it over ..




Eat with your favorite toppings..


i sprinkle it with sweet dessicated coconut and supposed to be a latik , but no available here..
toast your dried coconut if desired..i want fresh grated coconut here so that's why you see the coconut are not toasted brown color..it's just slightly pan fried..











ENJOY...
