Ensaladang Katuray

Ensaladang Katuray
Ensaladang Katuray, I am sure a lot of you are wondering what katuray is? Katuray is a small tree that is normally grown at backyards in the provinces. When in bloom you wont miss the tree full of white butterfly like flowers. The flowers are harvested before it is fully open and it is normally cooked with other vegetables like dinengden or bulanglang and of course this beautiful salad on this post. There is no special way of cleaning just remove the stem, open up the petals and remove the stamen and /or pistil of each flower. When cooked it gives a bitter sweet taste and a slight leathery texture. Once in a while you could find them in the supermarkets, but when they are in season surely you could buy them at wet markets.



1/2 k. katuray flowers
1 medium size tomato, chopped
1 small size onions, chopped thinly
2-3 tbsp. bagoon na isda
2 tblsp. vinegar

Cooking procedure:

Trim stem and remove stamen and/or pistil of each katuray flower and rinse. In a casserole boil water and blanch katuray for 1/2 to a minute, remove from water and drain, let cool. In a big bowl toss katuray, and all other ingredients. Chill in refrigerator until ready to serve.


  1. I agree to your post about Katuray because every time that i mentioned katuray, they asks me if what it is.

  2. can katuray cause abortion, i'm just wondering i'm 31 y/o married and have 11 y/o daughter. recently we found out that i'm pregnat we're so happy finally after 12 y/o we're having new baby. but when i eat katuray twice my baby lost

  3. I really do not know, I hope not.

  4. DEFINITELY NO.. Katuray does not cause abortion whatsoever

  5. so shocked that katuray flowers can be eaten,thought its just an ordinary flower grown anywhere...anyway,its good that it can be eaten just like any other vegetables we had around our backyard........thanks for the info...

  6. A friend of mine who had given me a stem of katuray to plant told me that katuray is very good for high blood. So when it got flower already, I keep on eating the leaves coz I have high pressure. But recently, someone informed me that katuray can thicken the blood. So I got confuse now. I don't know if I still have to continue eating katuray salad or not anymore. Please advise. Thank you. Edna S. Reyes

  7. nakaka high blood talaga ang katuray pag laging katuray... sa umaga, katuray, sa tanghali, katuray, sa gabi,katuray, kinabukasan katuray, panung di ka mahigh blood niyan sa inis na laging katuray... ** just kidding **
