Bicol Express Special Recipe
Lusog Notes:
This local dish is high in calcium that is not only good for bone health but also helps in blood clotting. It is also a source of iron needed for making red blood cells that carry oxygen around the body.
Chef's Tip:
Spiciness level will depend on the number and variety of sili used, thus start with less to control the spiciness level, then add more until preferred heat level is reached.
