I love anything that’s cooked with a rich tomato based sauce .. so this is, hands down, one of my favorite ulams of all times. Specially because it has lots of raisins that gives each bite a hint of sweetness. You can make this with chicken egg but I used quail eggs because it’s cute and I was thinking Twinkle will like it more because of it.
I used pork giniling (or ground pork) but you can also use ground chicken or ground beef. To make that rich sauce, I normally use tomato sauce but since our friends from Hunt’s sent us several packs of tomato paste, that’s what I used. It’s actually cheaper because a 150g pack is equal to a 500g pack of tomato sauce.
What I love about this is that it’s an easy to cook, one-pan recipe that has a lot of flavors. Leftovers can be made into torta or tortang talong. And it’s a budget-friendly dish too.
