Binatog Recipe


How to make Binatog at home. Binatog is a popular Filipino snack and commonly sold as street food in the some part of the Philippines. It is usually made of boiled corn kernel boiled until puffed and starts to break out and topped with salt or sugar and grated coconut. With this Binatog recipe, golden hominy style corn in a can is used. Feel free to use the white hominy in can. Canned hominy corn is already a little salty, drain liquid before boiling unless you prefer it salty. 

Hominy is a food made from kernels of corn that has been processed to make grain more puffy and chewy with a very unique flavor. Cooked hominy is about triple the size of a raw sweet-corn kernel. Hominy in a can is widely available, both at Mexican markets and many national supermarket chains like Walmart. Hominy in cans are available in white or golden. I find using hominy when making binatog so convenient and easy to use but if you prefer using sweet corn, click this Binatog link for complete recipe or check link below. 

Binatog when served is usually topped with salt or sugar or both with grated coconut. I like my Binatog with butter, grated coconut and condensed milk. So creamy and tasty so give this recipe a try today or save this link for later use. Make it today and share with family and friends. It is a great mid-afternoon snack and can also be served as a dessert. Watch the video below to see how easy it is on how to make Binatog at home. Check related recipes below.
