How to Cook Ube Turon Malagkit
Since turon malagkit has been so trending so as ube-flavored foods, I thought of making my own version of ube-flavored turon malagkit. Ube or purple yam is a very delicious root crop and used to make delicacies like ube halaya. Over the years, people have come up with different recipes with purple yam flavor. In this recipe, to make it taste like ube or purple yam, I use ube-flavored condensed milk. I also added some cheese as filling to balance the sweetness.
There are two ways to cook ube turon malagkit. First, you can use ube-flavored condensed milk. Second is by using ube flavoring. Also, you can either dip the fried turon malagkit in caramelized sugar or sprinkle the sugar to the turon malagkit while frying so it will caramelize as you fry.
