After a long silence, Im back. Done with checking exams, preparing notes and editing papers i finally have time updating my blog. "Gata" is famous among bicolano dishes. Aside from its spicy and hot flavor, the presence of "gata" distinguishes bicol dishes from other pinoy foodie. Here's my first "gata" menu - Ginataang alimango wid Sitaw..
Saute garlic, ginger and onions. Add the alimango.Season with shrimp paste (locally termed as "balaw" or "dinilan") and pepper. Add a cup of water then simmer for 10 minutes or until crab changes to orange color. Then add sitaw. When it is tender, add a mug of "kakang gata". Simmer for 5 minutes or until its creamy. Add some sili.
