RECIPE: Chef Tatung's Pansit Molo

Chef Tatung Sarthou recently demonstrated his culinary skills at The Maya Kitchen and shared his beloved Filipino favorite dishes.

Among the dishes he prepared, I really fell in-love with his Pansit Molo recipe. And because it's been raining the past few days, I think this recipe is perfect.


Pansit Molo is a Filipino favorite from the Ilonggo kitchen. The molos are meat dumplings in garlicky chicken broth garnished with scallions.

Ingredients:

1 pack molo (siomai or wanton) wrappers
300g course ground pork (20% fat)
200g shrimps, peeled, chopped
1/2 tsp ground pepper
2 cloves minced garlic
2 tbsp MAYA All-Purpose Flour
1 tsp salt
1 pc egg

Mix all ingredients for the filling. Get one molo wrapper and put a little filling in the center. Fold the wrapper, to make two ends meet to seal. Repeat until all fillings are wrapped. Set aside.


Broth:

1 whole chicken
12 cups water
1 cup shrimp heads
1 stalk celery, chopped
1 pc carrot, chopped
1 pc onion, chopped
fish sauce and white pepper to taste

Boil chicken with other ingredients over low fire. Remove chicken skin, shred the meat and set aside. Strain out the rest of the ingredients and discard. Season with fish sauce and white pepper. Bring to a simmer and drop dumplings and shrimps, and cook for 3 minutes.
Transfer into a bowl, garnish and serve.

Good for 10 -12 pax

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!

RECIPE: TKG's Brownie Balls with Cointreau Infused Cranberries

We may still be quarantined inside our homes but that doesn't mean we have to let go of our love for food. And if there's something positive that happened in our new normal, I'd say that most people (including me) have discovered the simple joys of spending more time in the kitchen. Here's my take on a classic brownie recipe made special with Cointreau.
