Serves 4


15-20 prawns

2 Ib Lapu-Lapu or grouper, clean and cut

1 red onion, quartered

4 long green chili

3 large tomato wedged

5 pieces of okra

1 small eggplant, sliced

1 daikon, peeled and sliced

1 bunch KangKong or morning glory

  5. Add the KangKong leaves (take only the leaves and leaf stalk then discard the main stem) Cover and cook for 3 to 5 minutes.

  6. Transfer to a serving bowl. Serve hot and enjoy!
