I know many of you knows how to cook Sinigang na Manok or Chicken in Sour Soup specially Filipinos, but let me share a bit on how i cook in my own style.
- 1 whole chicken cut in portion
- 2 packets of Knorr Sinigang Mix or fresh tamarind
- ¼ kilo of strings beans
- ½ kilo of eggplant
- 6 pcs of green chili (not spicy)
- Fish sauce (measurement according to your taste)
- 1 ginger medium size or according to your taste
- Sliced 4 tomatoes
- 1 whole big onion
- 5 bottles of half liter of mineral water
Steps in Cooking:
- I boiled mineral water and when it was boiling poured the cut chicken, onions, ginger, tomatoes.
- When the chicken was tender, I poured 1 packet of the Sinigang mix and tasted. It tasted less sour so I poured another one until I was satisfied with the sourness of the soup. The technique of getting the taste you would like when cooking is don’t put too much of sauces, salt, etc. You can adjust the taste easily if you add bit by bit until you like the taste.
- Then after the mix, I added the fish sauce to balance the taste.
- When it was boiling and the chicken was tender, I added the veges.
- It is up to the cook if he/she wants the veggies to be half cooked or fully cooked. I prefer half cooked.
- Serve hot with rice.
