Maybe the thing that sets living in the philippines apart from all other places is the endless variety of food sources, from well-known American dishes to Indian-inspired dishes. Filipino food, its epicurean influences have a range of American fast food, Indian chinese food, Pakistani street food, Indonesian cuisine, European, Scandinavian, Germanic, Italian, as well as a host of other culinary styles.
Living in the Philippines is as if you opened a door into a wide-open, constantly evolving book of culinary delights. With its small population, Filipinos have an affinity for their own cuisine. Not only do they love the unique taste of foods like lumpia and halo-halo, they also have the time and resources to cultivate these homegrown flavors.
One of the most unique Filipino dishes that is certainly available everywhere is called Hiyas na Kilaw. It is very difficult to call Hiyas na Kilaw a dessert because it's so much more than that. It is really quite versatile and I've found that by using a series of recipes to create the perfect presentation of Hiyas na Kilaw that you can create and end result that will have everyone raving.
The Filipino are very much connected to their culture, not only in the culinary department but also with the way they live their lives. Their households are comprised of extended family groups that they would always consider closer than their nuclear families.
The Mariano family is a typical example of the Filipino household. They live together in a compound or a cluster of several houses, usually in a residential area that serves as their home base, and in which their properties are found.
On the top of a pile of dishes would be Mariano's basic foods, like homegrown food for that matter. These meals often include rich flavors and that's exactly how their Mariano is a unique way of enjoying the menu.
The meals are cooked on the ground, usually in what is called a kimbapan, which is similar to an oca or a jiggie maker but a lot of different. It is a circular mat that serves as the cooking platform. The ingredients are placed in the circular container to have everything cooked at the same time. The mat is made of wood, and it's quite large.
When the meal is finished, everything is served in one place. Now you can either serve all the dishes together as a meal, or you can place it on a table and people eat on the table or in the kimbapan. The kimbapan is a popular dish because of the family connection, and the sharing of the meals.
Now that we know what Hiyas na Kilaw is all about, let's start cooking and I'll show you the right way to do it.
This is a very basic recipe and as with most Filipino dishes it requires some planning. The key to a successful Hiyas na Kilaw is to allow enough time for everything to come together and allow them to sit for at least two to three hours so that it can develop flavors. You want the flavors to meld together, and so do not expect to get away with a rush job.
If you are looking to serve the Hiyas na Kilaw, then you can choose to put it in a pan on the table, or you can put it in a serving tray, but because you are planning on serving a whole meal, then you need to serve the Hiyas na Kilaw as the first course.
The only thing you should prepare the day before is the fruit and the red ginger. You can prepare this the day before or the day you plan to make the Hiyas na Kilaw. The only thing you need to make sure is that the fruit and red ginger are at room temperature.
The next thing to do is to prepare the mangos. What I recommend doing is cutting the mangoes and throw them in the freezer, cutting the coconut water as well. You can use an ice cream scoop to measure the ice cream of the coconut water. Make sure the ice cream scoop has a lot of coconut water in it because you want to scoop a lot of the ice cream out so you don't end up using the whole coconut water.
You want to be sure to keep a good ice cream scoop handy. The ice
