Suam nga Karabasa, Kalabasa Soup
Suam nga Karabasa, Kalabasa Soup, here is a comfort food from my childhood I will never forget. Suam nga karabasa was then a regular dish when I was a kid, in fact I also did cooked it my self. That version was cooked with thick consistency for the reason that it was supposed to be a viand not as a soup, never the less it was still called suam. On this recipe I have tweaked a little bit I made it as a chunky soup. This version is probably not new to some, suam is versatile in its own it can be cooked on any consistency of your preference or can be topped with any leafy vegetable tops available at your garden…
