This is my lola's favorite dish. Not a week goes by that she doesn't cook 'dinengdeng', a typical ilokano dish, at least once.

My dinengdeng recipe.

    JMom, I cooked this too last night. BTW, while playing with my templates, I accidentally did something to my site that my address is now at: www.worldclasscuiscene.blogspot.com. Blogger won't let me go back. Kindly make the necessary change to your link...sowi.

    I love dinengdeng. it's my favorite Ilokano dish. I fish around for the slimy okra. YUM. Which reminds me I haven't asked my mom to make me any in a long time. She normally puts in leftover fried bangus, but i prefer shrimps.

    I love this dish too! Prior to reading this post I did not know that those beans are Lima beans. Thanks for the info!
    I recently bought 2 camotes in my craving to cook buridibod (if you are familiar with that?) but we don't have malunggay leaves here. Can you suggest a good alternative?

    Hi TingAling, Dina and Manang! Once in a while I just get a craving for dinengdeng that won't go away, and this simple version is usually good enough.

    Manang, I have never heard of the terms buridibod or inabraw, but I do remember my family fixing dinengdeng with sweet potatoes. Check out Mannurat's comments on TingAling's blog on her inabraw recipe. He suggested using any leafy vegetables like pechay, kamote leaves or ampalaya leaves. I am going to try planting ampalaya next summer so I can have some leaves. I hear they freeze well.
