Adobo is one of the most common and famous dish in the Philippines. And throughout the world, Filipinos are always associated with with menu. Cooking Adobo is easy. But sometimes, we need to add something in it to make it more exciting to eat. How about mixing Indian and Filipino culture in a dish? India is famous for their spicy foods mostly with curry powder as an ingredient. Now you know why I call it as Indian Adobo, it is because of the curry powder that I put on my Adobo. It’s very obvious I guess. (chuckles)
Here’s how to cook Indian Adobo:
In a hot frying pan, saute’ 3 cloves of chopped garlic and 1 medium sized onion, when golden brown, put the 1/2 adobo cut pork and cook it until near tender. Pour 1/2 cup vinegar, 1/4 cup soy sauce and 1 tablespoon fish sauce (patis). Add 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, 3 laurel leaves and a bit of seasoning. Add 1 tablespoon of curry powder, this makes our Adobo yellowish in color. When it is nearly cooked that the vinegar and soy sauce are already absorbed by the meat, add 1 teaspoon of sugar. Then serve.
Enjoy eating this authentic Filipino dish with a twist.
