Lusog Notes

This dish is high in protein that is needed for growth, development and repair of body tissues. It is also high in vitamin A that helps prevent infections by keeping the immune system healthy.

Chef's Tip

Sibuyas Tagalog or shallots are hard to peel. Soak them in water to make the paper-like skin to slide off easily.
