Ginisang Munggo

Ginisang Munggo
Ginisang Munggo. Mung Beans is a simple dish that is associated with the Filipino working class, what ever it is I love this dish. It is best served with fried fish. I like it with a lot of ampalaya and talong in it and topped with malungay or with talbos ng ampalaya.
