Kadyos, Baboy at Langka – Purple KBL
Kadyos, Baboy at Langka – Purple KBL. I finally found these fresh purple pigeon peas, kadyos in my favourite supermarket the South Supermarket at Filinvest Alabang. Most of our readers would probably know what KBL means, but to those who do not know KBL stands for Kadyos, Baboy at Langka, an Ilongo soup dish made up of pork usually pork hocks or legs with pigeon peas and unripe jack fruit sour with batwan or libas. This is not the first time that I cooked the dish I have on the archives a version using fresh green pigeon peas, click the link to see that post, KBL – Kadyos, Baboy at Lanka, and a version using dried red beans as substitute for kadyos, click the link to see that post, Pork Pata with Red Beans and Langka.
