Patis is the term used in the salty broth of the dish. The fish is slowly cooked until the fish is soft including the bones but remain firm.

  1. ask ko lang po kung pwede bang i-saing na isda ang galunggong?

    paano rin po pa para hindi siya malansa amoy at lasa?

    mae21 po ng japan

  2. lagyan lang ng luya para mawala ang lansa at pampalasa din...

  3. lagyan lamang po ng luya upang mawala ang lansa


  4. @ Efraim, tama po kayo nakalimutan kong lagyan, hehehe..

  5. I'm a batangueno in bahrain. After reading this, naalala ko na naman ang sinaing na tulingan ng tatay ko. I must say na dried kalamyas is better than fresh. mas malasa pa lalo kung iluluto sa palayok at lulutuin sa kahoy. Yun kasing aroma at lasa ng niluto sa kahoy ay mas evident kaysa sa niluto sa stove. and dont forget to put more taba ng baboy, nagdadagdag sya ng additional na lasa and kung wala naman, pwede yung pork oil. Secret to a delicious sinaing na tulingan eh yung slow cooking at extended time, yung tipong kahit yung tinik eh very brittle. At mas masarap pa lalo kung yan ay lulutuin uli as ginataang sinaang na tulingan kung may left over kayo.. yum yum!!
