Champorado

Try Champorado for breakfast. A Filipino sweet porridge made from cocoa and glutinous rice served with evaporated milk.

Champorado is a popular breakfast among Filipinos. If this rich chocolatey rice porridge or pudding does not get you up and about in the morning, I don’t know what else will. You can also serve it as an afternoon snack for an energy boost.A Filipino sweet porridge made from cocoa and glutinous rice top and served with condensed milk.

Usually, in the Philippines,  Champorado is eaten along with fried Tuyo, that is dried salted fish. I was not able to appreciate or even comprehend this weird combination while I was a kid. But later on, I actually learn to like it (a lot). It is like eating salted chocolate! The dried salted fish is usually shredded into bits and added on top of the Champorado and it gives a wonderful contrast to the sweetness of Champorado.       Chocolate rice pudding with evaporated milk on top served in a bowl.

There is a certain way I enjoy my Champorado.  I like it really milky so I add a lot of evaporated milk on top….but…I do not mix them together like others normally do. Carefully, I would try to scoop the Champorado and some milk with a spoon and I do it carefully so they would not mix. This is the way I do it since I was a kid..as long as I can remember eating Champorado, this is the only way I would enjoy it. My Mama thought it was weird and sometimes get into a fight with my siblings because I end up using almost all of the evaporated milk. It is because I like the distinct taste of both milk and chocolate separately but at the same time. Ok, maybe still weird, but not for me. Do you a certain but weird way of enjoying your favorite food too?

INGREDIENTS

INSTRUCTIONS

  • In a pot over high heat, bring 3 cups of water to boil. Add the glutinous rice and let it cook for 5 minutes, stirring from time to time.
  • Dissolve cocoa powder in 1 cup warm water. Make sure all lumps are gone. Pour cocoa mixture into the pot of rice and continue cooking until it gets thicker. Turn heat to medium-low. Add the sugar and stir occasionally to prevent rice from sticking at the bottom of the pot. Add more water if it gets too thick and the rice is not yet done.
  • Remove from heat once the glutinous rice is done and the desired consistency is achieved. Note, however, that the glutinous rice will continue to expand and absorb the liquid even after cooking.
  • Serve Champorado in a bowl and add some evaporated milk on top.

  1. Funny comment about how you love to eat it. I do the same with oatmeal. I like it cold and pour milk and maple syrup without stirring! Glad to hear I’m not the only one who it’s this way. Lol

  2. 5 stars
    I’ll do you one weirder…
    I like my champorado with CoffeeMate powder coffee creamer.
    I’m super OCD about how it all goes together, and this is the way I’ve eaten it since I I was a kid:

    Put a layer of coffeemate powder on top, spread out in an even layer on the entire surface (my family members also complained about how much coffeemate I used haha).

    Then “himay” the tuyo and sprinkle all over… so every bite had champorado, coffeemate & tuyo… xD

    1. Wow! And I thought it was weird, the way I eat my champorado…it is s nice though, to learn that it is kind of normal. Thanks so much, Madie, for sharing this! It made me feel a lot better, lol! But seriously thanks for your nice comment. Might even try it your way and see why you like it so much…

    1. Hi Tweety, I like my champorado really thick too! ☺️ The amount of water sometimes depends on the sticky rice. Old rice tends to soak up more than the new one. ????

  3. 5 stars
    WOW, this looks like a really delicious breakfast. I sometimes cook the rice with just sugar and milk, but never have tried it with cocoa. I am sure that it takes it on a whole new level of deliciousness. I cannot wait to try it.????
