Whenever I got sick, my mum would make chicken rice porridge to nourish me. It was the only meal I'd eat as a sick child. Now I make it for my husband and children.
Kanom Krok is an ubiquitous street snack made in the cast iron kanom krok pan. This version is rich, custardy and consistent. Recipes vary wildly, but this one works every time. More important than the recipe, though, is having a seasoned pan and even heat. I use a charcoal brazier, but you can use a gas burner that is wide and has a low temperature setting.
Banana muffins make a healthy snack for children after school. They are so easy to make and freeze well too. So, make these instead of throwing away those brown bananas!
This sweet dough wrapped around a chicken and pork filling makes a delicious snack.
Evaporated milk replaces the coconut milk in this dish which makes it a lot creamier. Definitely a must try.
Juicy whole chicken roasted or cooked on a rotiserrie. It still remains a popular street food in the Phillipines. It's best to give time for marinating so that the flavour melds together. Serve it with lechon sauce.
A braised dish made out of marinated pork. Pork asado is originally a Chinese recipe that has its own Filipino version.
A friend gave me this recipe - it's quick, easy and perfect every time!
