1 kilo prime cut tuna

8 cups of rice washing,

4 pieces plum tomatoes, quartered,

5 pieces taro roots , peeled and sliced

1 teaspoon salt or to taste,

4 pieces whole green chili,

2 bunches bok choy, washed and halve

  • This is a stew type of cooking so use a heavy casserole. Fill it with about 8 cups of rice washing (you can use water if you prefer).
  • On high heat let it boil. Add in the onion and tomato and simmer on medium heat. Once the tomato is a little mushy, add the taro roots and continue simmering.
  • Once the taro is tender slowly add the fish and continue cooking. Once the liquid is again boiling add the chili pepper and the salt.
  • Once the fish is thoroughly cook, add in your sinigang mix and taste to adjust the saltiness according to your liking.
  • Once you are already happy with the taste and hungry with the smell, add your bok choy , cover and cook for another minute.
  • Transfer in a large serving bowl, prepare your steamed rice and serve alongside.
  • Some fish sauce with chili dip will surely add the kick. Make sure you have a lot of rice.
