Lusog Notes

This Tortang Monggo dish is a unique spin on the Filipino favorite high in Vitamin A that helps boost the family's immunity and eyesight. It also has calcium which helps in bone growth and development.

Chef's Tip

Fry the mixture in a pan over medium to high heat. This allows the batter to set and at the same time brown. A pan that is too hot will burn the batter.
