Looking for the perfect merienda for a rainy day? Try Ginataan or what we call Sampelot in Pampanga.
Ginataan means cooked in gata or coconut milk. This is the first dish I ask from my mom as soon as I got home home from school.
Now, let me share a simple recipe for sampelot so you can try this for your loved ones at home.
5 pc saging na saba
1 pc kamote (sweet potato)
1 pc gabi (taro root)
1 pc ube (optional)
1/2 c sago (small)
1/2 c bilo-bilo
1/2 c langka (shredded)
3 c kakang gata (first extract)
2 c sugar (white)
Cut the kamote, gabi, ube and saging into bite size squares.
Mix all the ingredients and three cups of gata in a large pot and bring to a boil.
When it starts boiling, add the sugar and bilo bilo.
Let boil until all ingredients are cooked and the bilo bilo floats at the top.
Serve hot in bowl, topped with the kakang gata (first extract) and Inangit.
