When I found this recipe I went shopping for ingredients right away. Luckily I found frozen chili pepper leaves (dahon ng sili) at the Filipino store. Oh my god! Every spoonful of this wonderful tinola cured me of my homesickness. It felt like I was home again. Thank you so much, you have no idea how good this dish made me feel.
yum. i added about 7 cups of water and 3 tablespoons of fish sauce. 3 tablespoons of fish sauce was a bit too much. added "magic sarap" (a powder seasoning) that is popular here in the philippines. the magic sarap powder helped the flavor immensely. masarap (tagalog for delicious).
Thanks a lot for this recipe!!! Now, I learn to cook this soothing dish... the broth is just awesome... will definitely cook again!
what a quick and simple recipe for one of my favorite comfort foods!
Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe! Our nanny used to make this for us and now I can make it too!
Yummy! Reminded me of my Grandmother's recipe!
very comforting soup. everyone needs to try this. it's so delicious.
We Love This! To think so few ingredients make a dish this tasty. I was looking for a recipe to use a chayote. I never ate one before and didn't know how it would taste. That squash is very good also. The only thing I used differently is garlic and ginger paste instead of chopping them each up. I find it easier. And I have to say I tried using 3/4 cup of water and found the broth to strong/salty tasting. So I added another 1/2 cup of water and this tasted so perfect to me. Thank you so much for placing this recipe here for us.
