Pichi Pichi is a famous rice cake in Manila. It’s one of the “kakanin” you’ll see in the wet markets and sold per piece. There are two variants you can choose from: A pichi pichi coated in grated coconut or the one coated in cheese. Although it’s cheap and is easily found in Philippine wet markets, you can make this one at home too! This recipe uses only 5 ingredients. Check out the recipe below:
