champorado

January 20, 2010

One of my favorite childhood treats was champorado. It’s pretty much a sweet, chocolate rice porridge that you can actually eat hot or cold. I remember drizzling condensed milk straight from the can onto the porridge.

During the holidays, my husband and I got to talking about treats we had as children, wonderful, not-so-good-for-your-health things that our parents would make us. For him, it was cinnamon rice (hopefully we’ll make this sometime). For me, it was champorado.

Whenever my mother would make this porridge, she wouldn’t just use any kind of rice – she would use sweet rice. Tthough my town has plenty of Asian restaurants, there are no Asian grocery stores, where you can find this particular kind of rice. So, I made do with what I had in my pantry . . . leftover arborio rice from when I made risotto.

I enjoyed my treat immensely, so much so that I lost my recipe. I guess I will just have to make this another time!
