      this recipe is ok except that authentic sinigang has no potatoes but taro roots, and you can also add snake/string beans, kangkong (water spinach), and eggplant. also, for a much easier process, just dump all the ingredients into the pot except for sinigang mix, which you add after the meat (or seafood) is cooked and tender. much time and effort saved this way with the exact same result. you can also add green chile for some heat!

      I usually make a simpler version with just fresh veggies, cod, petise(fish sauce), tamarind and tomatoes. But this was a great dish... more original too :D

      I alwAys make this dish and its always a hit. I'm full Filipino and I'm of ilocano decent and we always put fresh slices of ginger. I usually put 3-4 thick pieces depending on how much you like ginger. It gives a nice fresh spice to your soup. Also like in another review fish sauce also tastes good in this dish. Asian eggplant, baby bok Choy and daikon are my fave trio of veggies.
