(Ideas) Adlai Champorado


Adlai is the new "it" grain in the Philippines. Never thought we'd be munching on another local grain ("Are there even any?" is a question we get a lot from customers) in a country where people only ever eat rice (and in some areas, corn) as their staple food.

It's gluten-free, vaguely rice-like, and (mostly) sustainably grown. Dieters and avocado-and-egg-grain-bowl-eaters are hoarding it. Restaurants are serving it up in hearty bowls of "risotto" and fancied up tiny porridges.

You can have it in countless ways, but now that rainy season has made mush of our brains and turned us into little children again, we can think of nothing but "You can champorado that!".

So boil up your champorado like you usually do (or like this or this or this), keeping in mind that the adlai needs either a bit more of a soak or longer boiling. It will never become truly soft and mushy.

Enjoy!
