Just-a-Pinch Recipe: Gisinggising

 I discovered this dish recently from our hospital's cafeteria. I was so intrigued at the name, Gisinggising, so I searched for it and found this recipe from Foodipino. I like the recipe, it's very simple and easy to follow.

As usual, I made some modifications from the original recipe. I cooked my version without the meat and instead of just using water spinach or water cabbage (kangkong), I added string beans (sitaw) and winged beans (sigarillas). I also cut on the amount of coconut milk.

Here's my own version which I posted in Just-a-Pinch Recipe Club. Click here to view recipe.


Actually, if you take a closer look at the pictures, you will notice that I added some left-over dried shrimps from my stocks to enhance the "shrimpy" flavor. 

I also tried another version using baguio beans instead of water spinach (kangkong), but my friends like the combination of kangkong and sigarillas better.

So there, you may challenge yourself to be awakened by chili flavor brought about by this dish.
