Inubaran na Manok sa Gata


Inubarang Manok sa Gata

Inubaran na Manok sa Gata – is a chicken stewed in coconut milk with ubad or ubod ingredient and libas leaves as a souring agent.

Ubod is another term for banana pith. While ubad is an Ilonggo dialect for ubod.

Anu nga ba ang ubad? Ang ubad po ay ilonggo dialect. Nakakita ka na ba ng puno ng saging? Pagpinutol mo yung puno makikita mo yung pinaka puti sa loob ng puno nong saging tanggalan mo tapos. Pag nakuha mo na yung pinakamalambot na parte ng puno nong saging yun yung tinatawag na ubad or ubod nang saging.

“Ubad, amo na siya ang pinaka-innermost (pinaka-sulod) portion sang lawas sang isa gid ka puno sang saging. Mahumok ina nga parte sang saging.”
