Champorado with Gata

We all have that comfort food that we associate with childhood. It has always been Champorado for me. I can remember rainy mornings when I was a child, classes suspended and I am just cozying up in the breakfast table in my pajamas, Champorado and milk in front of me, with slow jazz music playing in my father’s radio. My sister and I would overload our bowls with more milk, enjoying every little beautiful things. Now that I’m all grown-up (coughs), I still eat my every Champorado with those childhood memories. Even if I’m only eating this for a couple of minutes before a busy day at work, I still manage to enjoy a breakfast filled with so much tranquility and lightheartedness.

Now, John, being his usual self (the most amazing cook I’ve ever met), managed to make this meal even more special! What’s better than a Champorado? Well, a Champorado with Gata definitely! The fusion of chocolate and coconut milk is plain divine. I dare say too that the coconut milk made the chocolate flavor richer and the resulting dish extra creamier.Β Β We’ve also eaten this with salted dried fish and that, my friends, is when I lost all my cool. Those dried fish further complimented the champorado’s delicious taste.

  1. Oh my, chocolate and coconut milk? That sounds heavenly. My boyfriend’s Mother is from Guatemala, where they eat these cookies called Champurradas. The name of this recipe reminded me of them πŸ™‚ I’ll have to share the recipe some time

  2. The dish gives me an excitement on how does it taste like. It would probably be like a ginataan na malagkit with chocolate, I guess. Plus, the milk. Yum! Yum! I can’t wait to try this. Thanks for sharing the twist.
