I like ginataang langka, but I enjoy having ginataang langka with alimasag better. It is rich, flavorful, and has the right amount of heat.
Ginataang langka with alimasag is a dish composed of young (unripe) jackfruit, blue crabs, and gata. The jackfruit is sautéed in garlic, onion, and ginger and then cooked with coconut milk. Crabs and malunggay leaves are added in the middle of the cooking process.
For this recipe, I made use of Knorr Ginataang Gulay Recipe Mix as an alternative to regular coconut milk because it is already packed with flavors and spices that make my ginataan dish stand out. I bought the canned unripe jackfruit from the supermarket, while I got some fresh live blue crabs from the Asian store. I did not mind traveling around the area to complete the ingredients; my focus was on the prize. I knew that something good is going to happen soon.
