It is quite interesting how certain merienda fares are identified with certain places in the country. For instance, there is pansit from Malabon, ensaymada from Bulacan, buco pie from Los Banos, among others. From the following recipe we will learn to cook the most popular merienda in Iloilo.

  • 2 pcs crushed garlic
  • 1/4 kg ground pork
  • 1 pc chicken breast
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 medium-sized onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 garlic head, crushed and fried
  • 1 tbsp ginger, cut into strips
  • spring onions, cut into rings
  • 3 pcs chicken cubes
  • 1 liter water
  • black pepper for seasoning
  • cooking oil
  • fish sauce to taste
  • cauldron
  • wooden spoon or ladle
  • aluminum bowl
  • stove

  1. Put all the ingredients (ground pork, onions and 1 tbsp of fish sauce) together in an aluminum bowl.
  2. Mix the ingredients thoroughly with the help of a wooden spoon. The mixed ingredients will serve as fillings of the molo wrapper.
  3. Put a spoonful of the filling into each piece of molo wrapper. Make as many as 20 pieces of wrapped molo. Set them aside while you prepare the broth for the pansit molo.
  4. Heat a little amount of cooking oil in a pan and saute garlic, ginger and onions. Stir the ingredients well.
  5. Next, add the remaining filling. Stir ingredients again.
  6. Pour one liter of water slowly into the sauteed ingredients. Stir ingredients well and then cover the pan. Let boil fpr 10 minutes.
  7. After 10 minutes, put the wrapped molo one by one into the broth. Do this carefully so that the wrapped molo will not stick together. Season broth with black pepper.
  8. Add spring onions and fried garlic to the broth. Stir lightly. Reduce heat once the pieces of wrapped molo are fully immersed into the broth.
  9. Makes 8-10 servings.
