Not many millennials know this traditional Pinoy kakanin. But go to provinces and you will see that it is still recognized as one of the best merienda. Tinutong means burnt or toasted. Why such a name? This snack is made of glutinous rice cooked in coconut milk with toasted munggo or mung bean. It is like rice porridge but sweet and with beans. The beans are dry roasted in a pan and then ground. When added to the sticky rice, they add the crunchy texture to it, as well as a delightful toasted flavor. These roasted beans are also the reason for the brown color of tinutong.
Although it can be likened to biko, they taste and look differently. If you are curious about it, ready your ingredients and be excited for an awesome tinutong treat!
