Different Ways in Cooking Sinigang

     Sinigang is a Philippine dish consisting of meat or seafood and vegetables simmered in a sour broth, often with a base of rice washing (water used to rinse rice). The sour soup goes well with rice, the staple food of all Filipinos. Sinigang is traditionally tamarind based. Other versions of the dish derive their sourness from ingredients such as guava, calamansi, kamias, or raw mango among others. If you’re tired of the classic sinigang in tamarind, you may try these recipes to suit your taste buds.
