Ginataang Mais with Sago at Langka/ Corn Pudding with Sago or Tapioca and Jackfruit by SweetLifeBlog

Ginataang mais is made up of sweet rice, corn kernels, sugar and coconut milk. This recipe is cooked with tapioca pearls or sago and jackfruit (langka) which makes the dish more flavorful. This Filipino dish is often served during mirienda or as a dessert.

I have been craving for ginataang mais so I’ve decided to cook it for our mirienda. My husband requested that I add sago and jackfruit as he says it’s boring if I only put corn kernels.

And so upon my husband’s request, I cooked the Ginataang mais and added sago and langka to the mix and voila! The result is a sweet and delicious corn and sweet rice pudding that is so filling and tastes like home!

Give this recipe a try and let me know!

    How to cook the tapioca or sago pearls:

You may adjust how much sugar to add to the mixture depending on your taste.  Begin by adding 1/4 cup of sugar then add 1 tablespoon at a time.  Mix well and taste before adding more sugar. 
You may also add more water to the mixture to adjust the consistency that you want for your ginataang mais.
