Ginataang Manok sa Dilaw
Ginataang Manok sa Dilaw. Are you one of those who have caught with the turmeric powder health craze? There is no question about the health benefits of turmeric but we are not talking about that at this time. Instead I made a Pinoy recipe to make use of that same turmeric powder. Turmeric is no other than the luyang dilaw we used in some of our Pinoy dishes. Turmeric is not new to OPC in fact I have been using turmeric powder to give that yellow color and added extra depth of flavor the ginger.

Today I used turmeric to my Ginataang Manok sa Dilaw. The addition of turmeric has given a very appetizing bright yellow color to my otherwise pale ginataang manok. It also enhanced the flavours of the ginger. Ginger is one of the must have ingredients for the Pinoy ginataang dish.
