Of course adding the red mung beans is an extra process. You have to soak the beans at least 3 hours or overnight then boil in water for at least 30 minutes or until the beans are soft.
Biko can be eaten alone without a topping but can also be topped with Latik which is a curdled coconut cream. Some serve it with fresh grated coconut or make it bibingkang malagkit by adding toppings which is a combination of coconut cream and condensed milk then baked for few minutes.
This is my Biko loaded with tons of Latik on top. So delicious!
