2 cups of malagkit (sticky or sweet) rice
a can of coconut milk
fresh ginger or maybe anise seeds or anise extract
rice cooker

banana leaves- run leaves over flame, be careful not to burn them nor your fingers


1. cook malagkit in a rice cooker using 2/3 can of the coconut milk mixed with water. pound ginger and add to the rice mixture. cook until done.

2. once rice is cooked, wrap in banana leaf (about 6 x6 square) using 2 tbsp of the mixture . tie in pairs.

3. put in a large pot and add the rest of the coconut milk mixed with water. make sure the liquid is enough to cover all of your ibos. boil for 1 hour or until all the liquid evaporates.

4. let it cool and eat with brown sugar. Enjoy!!

NOTE: one is supposed to use young coconut leaves to wrap ibos but since that is not readily available even here in Los Angeles, banana leaves should do just fine.
