Rice Balls Ginataan

My daughter is very fond of rice balls and my husband loves ginataan. To make both of them happy, I make what they love in one menu. This photos were taken a couple of weeks ago when we got our asian goodies in Pittsburgh. The kids had so much fun in helping me to make the ginataan. They were the one who made the rice balls.
See how seriously and diligently they're working on to form the rice balls?

It was EJ's first time to help us in preparing the ginataan. Although he doesn't want to try to eat it when it's cooked, at least he is interested enough to help us and have fun.
Here's the yummy ginataan which my hubby called Guinobatan (one town in Albay Province) lol. The ingredients were banana (saba in jar), sweet potato (asian kamote, yung di malata), taro (gabi), jackfruit, condensed milk, and coconut milk. I did not include tapioca this time.
Just remember....


that a little bit of this
and a little dash of that
makes a sumptuous life...

so Spice Up Your Life.

The family that cooks together eats together. Ang galing naman nang mga anak mo na tinutulungan ka sa pagpe prepare sa pagluto nang guinataan. Siguradong masarap kang magluto nang guinataan dahil luto sa gata ang specialty nang mga taga Bicol. Nakakatuwa naman si EJ na very serius sa paggawa niya nang rice balls, lol. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
