Binagól is a sweet snack from the Visayas, particularly Leyte.
The name comes from the word bagól, which is “bao ng niyog” in Tagalog or “coconut shell” in English.
Its distinctive ingredient is crushed or grated talyan, a type of root crop similar to gabi (taro). Other ingredients include gata (coconut milk), gatas na malapot (condensed milk) and asukal na pula (brown sugar).
To make this you would also need dahon ng saging (banana leaves), bao ng niyog (coconut shell), and panali (twine or string for tying up the banana leaves in the final stages of wrapping binagol the traditional way).
