Champorado (Filipino Chocolate Rice Pudding) Recipe

champorado-chocolate-rice-pudding

Champorado is a kind of chocolate rice pudding eaten in the Philippines. This is not to be confused with the Mexican champurrado, which is more of a hot chocolate drink.

I had a roommate a while back that was freaking out with excitement when she discovered a pot of this was cooking up in the kitchen. It’s a rare treat around here, I guess!

Champorado is normally eaten for breakfast or just as a snack. Sometimes milk is added, and sometimes it’s topped with condensed milk too. However for this recipe, there’s no milk, and it’s sweetened with sugar.

Test the rice by eating  a grain every 2 minutes or so after it looks kind of soft. Only when it’s fully cooked to your liking, add the cocoa powder and mix thoroughly.

step3

Add the sugar and mix well.

step4

After the sugar is fully mixed in, serve.
