Ginataang Lechon Kawali. This dish is from a leftover lechon kawali that we had the other day. Most Pinoys love any kind of ginataan, dish cook with coconut milk is part of the Pinoy cuisine for the reason of the country’s abundance of the tree of life especially the Bicol Region.

Ginataang Lechon Kawali Recipe

On this dish I used coconut milk powder since they are always readily available here compared to freshly extracted coconut milk. Using powdered coconut milk usually results in thicker sauce.
