Binignit/ Ginataan Recipe
(my own version of binignit )
Some people called this "Ginataan na Halo-Halo or Ginataan" but in the place were I grew up, we called it "Binignit" its pretty popular in the Philippines some people sell this in cups for snacks/merienda time on the whole neighborhood, this is usually served during Holy Week in the Philippines Last couple days I've been thinking about making binignit and finally I made it, luckily for me! I have some fresh riped banana left over from Banana Que I made last week.Throw everything in one pot and wholaa! enjoying binignit in minutes. Everyone have its own delicious version of making this delightful snack My version of Binignit was inspired on how I remembered my Mom's made it for us, simple yet deliscious. But due to the unavailability of some ingredients I only have some few on my binignit. The taste still good though!:).~ I would say that.. simplest ingredients is the best!!C'mon lets start cooking!
