Buridibud a Alukon ken Patani Recipe
Buridibud, Dinengdeng a Alukon ken Patani. I have been longing to try a version of dinendeng or buridibud using the combination of alukon, patani and some eggplant. Alukon is a small tree that is endemic to Ilokanos in Northern Luzon it is also named alucon, himbabau and alibagbag and some other names on different parts of the country.

Dinengdeng a Alukon ken Patani

The green worm like flowers is used in many Ilokano recipes. This is the first time I cooked this dinengdeng combination, I just followed my Ilokano instinct to come up with this version of dinengdeng or it may be more appropriate to call in buridibud because I used kamote roots to give texture to the broth.
