Binagol is a Filipino sweet steamed delicacy made from mashed giant taro corms, condensed milk, sugar, coconut milk, and egg yolks. It is distinctively placed in half of a coconut shell and then wrapped in banana leaves and twine. The name means "to place in a coconut shell", from Visayan bagol, "coconut shell". Binagol traditionally use the corms of the giant taro (locally known as talyan or talian), however, the corms of taro (locally known as gabi) can also be used. The delicacy originates from the islands of Leyte and Samar in the Eastern Visayas.[1][2][3][4]
