Sinigang Na Munggo Recipe

Sinigang Na Munggo  Recipe

  • ¼ kg mung beans or munggo, soaked overnight, liquid drained
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 medium-size onion, chopped
  • 2 medium-size tomatoes, diced
  • 1 cup fresh tamarind stock
  • Fish sauce and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1 piece long green chili or siling haba
  • Sinigang mix, to taste
  • 1 cup malunggay (moringa) leaves or kangkong (water spinach) leaves, stalks removed
  • Chicaron (pork cracklings), for topping
  1. In a pot, boil the munggo until tender. As the beans tend to absorb water, add just enough water to cover the beans while boiling. Strain liquid and set aside.
  2. In a pan, heat oil and saute garlic, onion and tomatoes. Saute until tomatoes are soft and chopped onions are translucent.
  3. Add cooked munggo and tamarind stock.
  4. Season with fish sauce and pepper. Thrown in siling haba. Add sinigang mix according to taste. Thrown in malunggay or kangkong leaves. Stir and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes.
  5. Top with chicharon.
