CHAMPORADO BENTO RECIPE
Designed by @jacobs_food_diaries
3 tbsp. cocoa powder
1 cup of sticky rice
2 cups of water
1 cup skim milk
2 tbsp. coconut sugar
1 small plum
Handful of Tuyo
1 tsp agar
1 cup of water
First, cook the sticky rice in a small pot and wait for it to boil.
Once it’s boiling, turn down the heat and then add the cocoa powder, coconut sugar and milk.
Keep stirring until it is a thick consistency.
Our version of champorado is a bit different. We’re turning the porridge into jelly, so it holds its shape.
Next, pour the mixture onto a tray lined with baking paper and spread it evenly. Then leave it
to cool in the fridge.
Once it sets, cut it in the shape of a fish.
For the fish eyes, cut ovals and circles from a wholemeal wrap and also from blue and
Use a bit of dried fish to make the gills.
For the scales, cut slices from apples or any white flesh fruit, and arrange them in rows.
Use more dried fish to create the tail and mouth.
Place the tortilla as a base in the bento box.
Line the base with healthy vegetables like corn, carrots and long beans.
Finally, carefully lift your fish and lay it onto the bento.
*HOW TO MAKE A COLOURED PANCAKE
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ tablespoon sugar
¼ teaspoon salt
¾ to 1 cup milk
1 tablespoon melted butter
1 teaspoon butter for the pan
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt.
In another bowl, beat the egg and then whisk in the milk and melted butter.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir well. If the batter seems too thick, add more of the milk, a little at a time.
Tip: This recipe will yield 2-3 pancakes. If you don’t want all your pancakes to be the same color, separate the desired amount and color each batch individually.
Melt the butter in a large skillet or griddle over medium heat.
Ladle about ¾ cup of the batter onto the skillet to make a pancake.
Cook until bubbles break the surface of the pancake, and the underside is golden brown, about 3 minutes.
Flip with a spatula and cook about 1 minute more on the second side. Remove from the pan and place on a plate.
Repeat until all the batter is used up.
Tip: If you don’t want to use up all your pancake batter, you can store the excess in the refrigerator or the freezer.
POUR half a bottle of glue into an empty container.
ADD half a cup of warm water.
Stir the solution in the container till it’s mixed. Set that aside.
Take another empty container and pour warm water in, until it’s half filled.
Add one teaspoon of borax into the container half-filled with warm water.
Stir the mixture until the Borax dissolves.
Now slowly pour the Borax solution into the water and glue mixture. Do this while slowly stirring the water and glue mixture.
Keep going until the mixture thickens into a slime.
Fold the slime mixture twenty to thirty times.
Take a small bowl and fill it with iron filings.
Finally, fix your iron fillings to the slime.
Now, your magnetic slime is made and you can manipulate it using a neodymium magnet. Ceramic magnets will work too but have a weaker magnetic feel than neodymium magnets.
