Paano ba magluto ng ginataang tilapia? Super dali lamang po lutuin ng napaka sarap na Ginataang Tilapia. Para sa mga mommies na on the go or busy sa work, eto na ang easy way to cook Ginataang Tilapia.
Years ago kailangan mo pang magpiga ng gata, pero sa makabagong panahon and coconut cream at coconut milk ay hindi nalalayo sa fresh coconut milk na pinipiga.
Same result sa cooking at masarap din. Tandaan lamang na magkaiba po ang coconut cream sa coconut milk. Sa ginataang tilapia recipe na ito ay gumamit ako ng coconut cream dahil mas gusto kong mas creamy ang sauce. Ngunit maari din po gumamit ng coconut milk kung hindi available ang coconut cream.
