On Friday (8-10-2012), one of our dogs, Batutay scratched my bedroom door at the middle of the night. I don’t know what’s up, angrily opened the door and when she saw me, there is an obvious sign of relief and the full wagging of tail shows she’s quite happy. She entered my room without my permission jumped on my bed and slept. Then, I came into conclusion that she felt cold, so I just let her sleep beside me.
When we humans are feeling cold, aside from curling on bed with blanket covering us, one of the ways to warm up ourselves is by sipping a warm soup.
Locally, a Chicken and Ginger Soup is called Tinolang Manok, this is a boiled chicken with ginger and more spices. This is one of my favorite dish since I was a kid.
- 1 1/2 kilo chicken – chopped into pieces
- 2 pieces large sayote – peeled, cored and chopped
- 2 thumb-size ginger – sliced
- 12 cups water
- 1 cup dahon ng sili
- 4 cloves garlic – mined
- 1 medium sized onion, chopped
- 1 piece siling panigang
- 2 spoon large spring onions
- salt and pepper to taste
- Saute garlic, onions and ginger
- Add the chicken and let it simmer for a while
- Add water and bring into boil
- Add siling panigang
- Add salt and pepper to taste, make it a little salty from your taste preference
- Add the sayote and let boil until the pieces of sayote soften, the sayote will absorb the saltiness of the soup.
- Add the spring onion and let it simmer
- Add the dahon ng sili and let it simmer for a while
- Serve while still hot
This is best with hot rice, fish sauce with crashed green chillies.
