Lusog Notes

This recipe is a source of protein needed for the growth, development, and repair of the body tissues. It also has iron which is is required to make red blood cells that carry oxygen around the body.

Chef's Tip

The rice washing will add a slight thickness to the soup because of the starch of the rice. Rice washing should come from the second washing of the rice.
