Cooking Procedures :

  1. In a medium saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Sauté ginger and garlic until fragrant. Add onions, stir-fry until softened and translucent.

  3. Pour in water (or rice water, if using). Bring to a boil. Lower the heat and let it simmer until chicken is half-done. Add in chayote (or papaya or potatoes, if using). Continue simmering until chicken and vegetable are tender. Correct seasonings and then add chili leaves or malunggay or substitute. Stir to combine until well blended. Remove from heat.

Please explain to me what rice water is. . .

How do you prepare catfish? In Florida they skin the catfish. I tried cleaning catfish for the first time since I as a girl. I could not skin it. I told Mom and she said they did not skin it in Manila. They just slash the skin was great.
