Filipino Mung Bean Porridge

A traditional Filipino dish of the island of Leyte handed down by my mother. It combines chicken, prawns and mung beans into a thick soupy porridge flavoured with fish sauce.

Filipino Mung Bean Porridge


Can be made without prawns, or a different cut of chicken. Leftover meat can be used too.
Be careful when the mung beans are in the oven that it doesn't form a crust on the bottom or the top of the dish. An occasional stir can prevent this from happening.
