Method #1

  • 2 tablespoons munggo, toasted in a skillet
  • 1 cup coco cream
  • 1 cup malagkit (glutinous rice)
  • 5 cups coconut milk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • Parch the munggo; rub off husks and winnow.
  • Combine malagkit and munggo; wash well and cook in coconut milk until done.
  • Remove from fire; stir in coco cream and sugar.
  • Serve hot or cold for 10.

Method #2

  • 1/4 cup munggo
  • 5 cups (approx.) water
  • 1 cup fresh, canned or frozen corn kernels
  • 1 can or 1 pkg. coconut milk
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cups white sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract (optional)
  • Toast the munggo in a wok or heavy skillet until brown
  • Cool and roll in rolling pin to cut them in halves
  • Add the toasted munggo with the rice so they will cook together
  • They're kind of tough so you will need to cook the lugaw a bit longer
  • Add the rest of the ingredients and you have ginataang munggo or what Kapampangans call Lelut Balatung and Lelut Mais for the other
