Latik is a ingredient in the Philippines mainly used as a topping in rice cakes, made with coconut milk and/or cream reduced and rendered until it forms into curds.




  1. Pour coconut cream in a pot then simmer in medium heat until it boils. Continue to boil until it renders oil, lower heat and gently fry the curds until golden brown, make sure to constantly stir it so it does not burn.
  2. Once you have a clear oil and golden-brown curds, using a sieve separate them together. The residue are curds or “latik” and the oil is coconut oil, set the oil aside as this can be used in many different ways.
