Ginisang Munggo sa Gata



“Ginisang Munggo (Sauteed Mung Beans) is as Filipino as it gets. Favorite dish to go with fried galunggong (round scad). Never had it any other way, until now.

A dearest friend that hails from Antique, in the Visayan region of the Philippines. According to her, they put coconut milk in their munggo. And since my inquiring palate wants to know, I had her cook ginisang munggo her way. It was a successful dish.

Regional variations of certain Filipino dishes are a testament to the diversity, resourcefulness, and creativity of the Filipino people.

Next time you prepare ginisang munggo, think about adding coconut milk for a change. Enjoy!”
