Ginataang Mais Recipe

Ginataang Mais Recipe


Ginataang Mais or Corn in Coconut Milk is a Filipino sweet snack made from sticky rice, coconut milk sugar and corn kernels. It is also called Lugaw na Mais. They can be eaten warm or cold.

Corn of course is the main ingredient on this recipe. I prefer adding cream corn instead of the whole corn kernels because I find it creamier and I can taste the corn better.  But, it’s up to you which one you’d like to use or whichever is available.

  • Rinse glutinous rice until water runs clear.
