Ginataang Mais (Rice and Corn with Coconut Milk)

Ginataang Mais (Rice and Corn with Coconut Milk) is a fave food in my country The Philippines. Ginataan (Coconut Milk) dishes are common and have lots of variation such as sweet and savory. This is a sweet coconut milk dish. In here we used rice with corn but you can also use red mongo beans (adzuki beans) and theres also Ginataang Sari Sari that has a lot of add-ons like banana, tapioca, yam and the sticky rice is in ball form. I know, too much info! This is a snack that my mother cooks for me. A favorite in our household. We usually add Jackfruit flesh in here to add to sweetness and smell. But again that's hard to find here.

I always wanted to do this dish but I don't know where to find glutinous rice. The main ingredient needed. I started doing Rice Pudding for my son and realized that its a bit the same. Not sticky enough but rice pudding rice has a good texture thick too. This is the first time for me to try it here and I am glad that it worked.



  • 1 cup – coconut milk
  • 1-1/2 cups –  water (adjust to your preference)
  • 1/2 cup – rice pudding rice
  • 4 cobettes – corn, cut
  • 1/2 cup – granulated sugar
Cooking Procedure
  1. Combine coconut milk, corn and rice in a cooking pot then turn on the heat.
  2. Once the coconut milk is boiling, stir the mixture to prevent the glutinous rice from sticking. Set the heat to low and let the rice cook stirring continuously. Adding about 1/2 cup of water every time the liquid is reduced. Do so till the rice is cooked.
  3. Put-in the sugar and stir thoroughly. Cook for 2 more minutes.
  4. Serve and eat! Yummy!

    That looks lovely! I love the combination of rice and coconut milk. In fact, one of my favourite desserts is Thai sticky rice and mango, yum!

      Yes thats so yummy too! You can add mangoes on top of this as well. But I like the local mango in my country or Asia, the flesh is the sweetest!

      Thanks for dropping by =)
