Last Monday, which is a holiday, is comfort food day for us in the house. We planned to cook tinola for lunch and champorado for merienda. I requested for champorado because I couldn’t remember the last time I ate one. My Nanay, unfortunately, had to attend to her Midwife duties, delivering 2 babies that day. So I was left to cook our meals. I never tried cooking champorado by myself. So when my Nanay woke me up during my afternoon nap before going to attend another delivery, I was left with a pot of boiling water with malagkit rice, diluted chocolate powder, brown sugar and milk. I know champorado looks simple, but I found it quite challenging! The stirring to make sure that the rice won’t stick at the bottom; attaining the right consistency, sweetness and color. When I thought I’m done, I noticed that  the champorado has very dark color and very thick (First photo). Noooo!!. So I bought the pot back and adjusted the color and consistency, until I achieved my desired result. And yes, it was good! My Nanay said, I got it right. Wee!!! Cheers to champorado! hehehe
