Ginataang Monggo

This is one of the monggo recipes that you will certainly never forget. If you are looking for a healthy and delicious dish to prepare, Ginataang Monggo with Langka at Dilis is one of your best options. Instead of using pork, used dilis (anchovies) to make it less fatty.

Note from Delish:

Here’s one monggo or munggo recipe that I love. But instead of using pork, I used anchovies because I want the healthier version. But you can always use pork, beef or whatever you want. Also, added unripe jackfruit to give more texture to the dish.
