Have you ever tasted cuisines that are mixed with coconut milk?
Filipino Adobo the all time favorite dish of the Filipino’s is now great with coconut milk. I have tasted and loved it since I’m a fan of eating foods with coconut milk. Locals here call it as Adobong Manok sa Gata. It gives you a creamy sauce mixed with the spices and herbs of an Adobo.
I remembered before me and my mom’s friends went to the beach and they brought a lot of food to accommodate us all. There was this one food that really interested me and it was Chicken Adobo in coconut milk.
If you take look at it, you get to see that this main course is ordinary but it’s really an enticing meal. It was my first taste, I was so overwhelmed of how balanced the Adobo marinate and the flavor of the coconut milk remained.
Since that day I found out the Filipino Adobo is really flexible and it can be mixed to whatever ingredient you want to add it to. If you love to cook cuisines and have the heart try this out it’s really simply mix it with coconut milk.
