Tinolang Halaan with Sotanghon
Tinolang Halaan with Sotanghon. I bought a kilo of halaan from S&R earlier today which make me think and try to innovate on how to cook halaan or clams aside the traditional Tinolang Halaan this evening. I thought adding sotanghon to the traditional tinolang halaan would do the trick. Initially I wanted to add some ampalaya leaves to the dish similar to my Tinolang Manok with Sotanghon but I forget to buy ampalaya leaves so I settled to used malungay leaves instead. I had to get the malungay leaves from our neighbour it was already too late to go to the vegetable market.
