    Glaswegian Robert's Note:

    This a fantastic vegetarian dish from the Philippines, which was given to me by a Filipina work colleague. There is a lot of oil, but skimping on that affects the flavour. Good on its own or with plain boiled rice. You can make this thick or soup-like, but either way it's delicious.
