The region i’m in, in the Bicol, down south of Luzon island; is known for its home cooking using coconut cream. Add to that the signature chili, especially the small mean ones called as siling labuyo, and you have a busy, furious meal time. One final note, get those glass of water ready. The cooking will take time. First you have to grind the coconut meat. To better extract, use lukewarm water, then press the pulp between your two hands, like forming a mudball in it, with all your might till the juice comes out. In a pan filled with the coco cream, toss garlic, onions, ground pepper, and this time i used canned sardines. I will cook outside, the weather’s fine after the rains of the recent low pressure area off Manila, using firewood. The mixture will need constant stirring till it boils, then the prepared moringa can be added. Salt to taste. Kick in that red chili. Bon appetit!
