Champorado is an exceptional Filipino dish served for a dessert or breakfast and is a deliciously chocolate version of rice pudding. Simply made, but wonderful.


Champorado (Chocolate Rice)
Recipe type: Main Course
Cuisine: Filipino
Serves: 6
  • 1 Cup rice
  • 5 Cups water (up to 6)
  • 1/2 Cup sugar (to taste) (up to 1)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 5 Tablespoons cocoa (You could probably substitute chocolate syrup for the cocoa and sugar.)
  1. Wash rice if necessary and drain. Boil gently in a covered pot with the water for 15 minutes or until rice is partially cooked.
  2. Mix sugar, cocoa and salt and add to rice. Simmer covered for 15 minutes more, stirring occasionally.
  3. When done, this will be slightly "soupy" -- sort of like those nice brownie puddings. But it solidifies when refrigerated.
  4. Serve very warm, with milk or cream as shown, if desired.
