  • Wash santol. Pat dry. Cut in half, remove the seeds, then scrape the flesh or pulp.
    Soak the grated or scraped flesh of santol in a bowl of water with salt, to prevent from darkening and removing the slight bitter taste. Then drain and squeeze dry. Set aside.
    Heat oil in pan, saute ginger, onion and garlic,then brown the meat. Add the coconut milk and cream. Add bagoong. Bring to boil, while constantly stirring to avoid curdling.
    Add the santol and siling labuyo (lessen the chilis if you don't want it too hot). Adjust the taste, add bagoong or salt if preferred.
    Simmer. Cook for about 15 to 20 minutes, or until oil comes out of the coconut cream.
    Serve. Garnish with red chilis and cooked coconut cream (optional) . Enjoy!
