Sinigang, we all know, is Filipino soup dish with a very distinct sour taste… It would always be sinigang.. any Sunday is made special by this soup dish.. and any gloomy day can be brighten with a bowl of steaming hot sinigang..
I remember when I was a child, I used to make a list of different kinds of sinigang.. ranging from the type of meat used to the kind of fruit used to make it sour. I am very used to cooking sinigang as it is, boiling/cooking all the ingredients together. Then I married someone who’s roots came from Pampanga.. and I learned how to cook Sinigang by sauteing it.
