Food Friday

23 shared thoughts
Last weekend I decided to buy chicken since I wanted to make this dish...Tinolang Manok (Chicken Ginger Stew), with Unripe Papaya, this week.

As usual, I don't follow recipes to the letter, and I even have this irritating habit of adding in (or omitting) some ingredients. LOL. In this case, I think bell peppers and spring onions aren't normally part of this dish; I omitted the onions. Weird, huh? :D

Shots above are some of the ingredients I used: Chicken, unripe papaya, bell pepper, ginger, garlic, spring onions, and chili leaves. I sliced the ginger, bell pepper, and garlic in small cubes since I wanted to mix them with my rice and eat them (once the dish was cooked). I like their taste. Period. ;P

First, I sauteed the ginger, garlic, and bell pepper for a few seconds in canola oil, then added in the chicken parts. Cooked them for a few minutes in low heat (I didn't want the other ingredients to burn) until the chicken changed color. Water was then added, and salt and pepper. Left it on to simmer for about twenty minutes then added the papayas. Once the papayas were almost cooked the chili leaves came next and fish sauce (this is usually the part where I adjust the taste).  The last ingredient to be added was the spring onions....

Here's the result:

Perfect on a rainy day, with steamed rice. For me it's perfect as it is, too ... and sometimes you can even find me happily slurping my share in front of my computer. lol. :D

i also love to chew on garlic, especially fried.:p
since you used chili leaves, then bell pepper is OK. our tinola is not tinola without lemongrass.:p

our family's favorite...:) we usually have it with sayote, madalas walang dahon ng sili kasi bihira ako makakita dito but with your add-ons, will try to do it next time. visiting super busy with everything around, wala na kaming stay-in kasi, but we still have the one who's working with ironing tsaka cook dinner foods on weekdays (she's been working with kent for the past 16 years and we love her). btw, thanks for wishing me luck. done visiting all entries. have a great week. :)

thanks, cheerful
...personally, with food it's always a good thing to improvise. change something for another, if it's not available. baka mas magugustuhan mo pa! hehehe.
...i can so relate to not having a stay-in's a good thing that we have someone who comes here twice a week to do the washing, ironing, and cleaning around the house..or else maloloka ako! LOL
...really appreciate the visiting you've been doing! thanks so much!♥
