Ginisang Monggo with Dilis is a version of my favorite Friday monggo dish. We used to have mung beans every Friday in the Philippines for some reason that I still do not understand up to now. Whatever the reason was, I am still trying to keep the tradition alive even though I am outside of […]

How about you? What do you pair Sinangag na Dilis with?
