Puto Maya at Sikwate Recipe

Puto Maya at Sikwate Recipe

Sweet Day Everyone!
 The best thing that I love waking up in the morning is having Puto Maya and Sikwate. Yum! Do you missed those time? When your whole family just sit on the market stalls eating Puto Maya and Sikwate early in the morning or even late afternoon?  Well, I do! missed it a lot. There's nothing more exciting than smelling the aroma from Puto Maya and Sikwate, having fun eating with family and friends. Today, I'm going to make that traditional Filipino snack that you probably missed with my super easy simple recipe..:) Before, I proceed with the recipe I give you little introduction on what is Puto Maya and Sikwate means? Shall we:)

Puto Maya- a sweet sticky rice cooked with coconut milk. YUM! 
Sikwate/ Tableya- is a traditional Filipino hot chocolate beverage made of roasted cocoa beans that are grinned and form into “tablets.” Once tableya or tablets mix with water and sugar. It turn into this deliciously good hot chocolate most of the locals called it Sikwate or Tableya.
-Puto Maya + Sikwate = DELICIOUS!

Now, that you know little bit about the delicious food that I'm going to share with you. Are you excited to make it at home? Yes?  This is not the first time I made Puto Maya, This is like more my" to go" merienda so I make this recipe all the time. The recipe is very similar on making Suman Malagkit but without the banana leaves, and kinda same with Biko Espesyal Recipe but without caramel sauce. The Puto Maya is often served with Sikwate and some folks especially my friends told me that they are equally delicious paired with Mango as well. YUM! Although I haven't tried it with mango, I'm curios what it taste like.:)
C'mon you guys! join me in my kitchen and lets enjoy and devour Puto Maya! Below are the recipe ob both Puto Maya and Sikwate..check them out.:)

- Used fresh coconut milk if you have it on hand. Adjust the recipe for larger crowd and taste according to your preference.


2 cups of sticky rice
1 can of 13.5 oz coconut milk
Ginger- sliced
sugar- depend on how sweet you want it to be

1.) Put the 2 cups of sticky rice in a pan or you can simply used rice cooker in this process. Rinse the sticky rice with water. Add the whole can of coconut milk, little salt, sugar and ginger.
2.) Let it cooked on medium high heat. That's it!
3.) Once the coconut milk is gone turn it low.

Sikwate Recipe:


 The ratio on a perfect Sikwate is (1 tableya into 1 cup of water). Just simple put the tableya and water in large pan and let it boil to perfection. Add brown sugar and serve it on your favorite mug. Enjoy!

A perfect combination snack for you and the whole group to enjoy. One word to describe about this recipe is DELICIOUS! No wonder why we keep coming back every Sunday  just to buy Puto Maya and have a stock of tableya on hand all the time. This is the closer I can get to bring those childhood memories. Until now, I still love eating this dish... Are you big fan of Puto Maya and Sikwate as well? Please share your thoughts about this awesome merienda. 
 Until next time and hopefully you'll find this recipe exciting, fun and delicious. Enjoy the rest of the day:)
