Overview of Maja Blanca
I took some of the maja blanca to some Swiss friends and as usual they were curious. I was asked what it is and the nearest equivalent I could find is BLANCMANGE. I did explain that instead of milk I used coconut milk. They all love it.
Blancmange (bluh-MANHZH) is a pudding made of cornstarch, milk, vanilla, and sugar. Gelatin is substituted for the cornstarch. The mixture is poured into a mould, chilled and unmoulded. Served with sweet sauce or fresh fruit.
So I explained I used sweet corn and coconut cream and the conversation that afternoon was on Filipino food. And guess what they requested next time I visit them: spring rolls.
