Champorado is a sweet chocolate rice porridge. Tuyo is dried salty fish. These two are partners in crime..heehee.Well, nothing beats the sweet and salty when they’re eaten together. What you do is put flakes of the fish on top of your Champorado, so that when you eat a spoonful of it, you take a flake of the fish.
Champorado is traditionally made by boiling sticky rice with cocoa powder, milk and of course sugar to make it taste sweeter. It is usually served hot during breakfast but it can be also be served cold. We added a few of this Batangas Hot Chocolate balls we bought last Summer to make the porridge more chocolate-y and delicious. It was like eating dark chocolate porridge….. and with swirls of evaporated milk– it was heaven in a bowl!
