    hey you’re a big help to me…
    i really want to learn how to cook maja blanca.
    but how about if i want to make a big ‘bilao’
    of maja blanca for my mother’s bday? please send
    me the right amount of ingredients that i will need.
    thanks a lot…

  5. almaNo Gravatar Says:

    hi, eiram…
    i think if you want to cook maja blanca as big as the bilao you can just double or triple the amount in the recipe here…2 liters will be double so you need 4 liters or 6liters for more…ganun lang po. but its hard to mix na if madami masyado and quantity so…ask for help to somebody with a huge muscles…(joke!) hope you enjoy it too…like i do…thanks to Toronto Filipino…mabuhay kayo!!!

    Isn’t it 2.0 liters of coconut milk too much for 200 grams of cornstarch? the usual ratio of coconut milk to cornstarch is 4:1 for maja blanca. Thanks
