This is one of the best merienda (mid-afternoon snack) that my mother cooks for us. It's a healthy dish where fruits and root crops are cooked in coconut milk. In our country, we call it "Ginataang Halo-Halo". The best thing I enjoy doing when preparing this dish is when we make "bilo-bilo". Bilo-bilo is made from glutinous rice flour, mixed with water to shape it into balls.

You just have to roll the dough of the mixed glutinous rice and water to your hands to form it into marble-sized balls.

There are also bilo-bilos that are purple in color. We mostly include the purple bilo-bilos to add color to this dish. You will surely like all the ingredients used here especially the the bilo-bilo, sweet potatoes and plantains.

What you need :

5 plantain (saba) bananas, peeled and cut into small pieces

1/2 kilo sweet potato, cut into small cubes

2 pcs big taro root (gabi), cut into small cubes

1/4 kilo glutinous flour, turned into bilo-bilo

1 cup cooked tiny sago (tapioca pearls)

1/4 cup jack fruit, sliced into strips

1/2 kilo light brown sugar

3 cups coconut milk

Cooking Procedures :

1. Boil enough water in a casserole dish.

2. Put in bilo-bilo. When it floats, add the cubed taro roots (gabi). Simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

3. Add the cubed sweet potatoes, sliced plantain (saba) bananas together with sago and jack fruit. Simmer again for another 10 minutes, stirring every few minutes.

4. Add the coconut milk and sugar, stir well. Cook over low heat, uncovered, until all the ingredients are tender, with constant stirring.

5. Serve. This dish may be served warm or cold.
