Ginataang Halo-Halo

Ginataang Halo-Halo
Ginataang Halo-Halo is a Pinoy traditional dish that is almost forgotten by the younger generation especially in the City. This is because of the popularity of Western fast foods that have proliferated everywhere.

Ginataang Halo-Halo Recipe

When I was a kid I still remember this native merienda being served at birthday celebrations or any other special occasions in the province. Cooking this ginataang halo-halo at your home is fairly easy. Ingredients are easily available at both supermarkets and wet markets.

  13. @ Anonymous,
    I read from somewhere that you can make galapong by simply mixing glutinous rice flour and water, I have not tried it but may be i could make one soon.

    @ tina,
    thanks for the info.
