  • Heat a pan with a little oil, about 2 teaspoons over medium high heat / fire.
  • Add minced garlic followed by onion and ginger.
  • If using meat or shrimp, add them next but take the shrimp off the pan when it turns pink.
  • Set it aside to be put back towards the end of cooking.
  • When the ground pork has browned... add the kangkong (spinach), season with a little salt and pepper.
  • Next, add green chilis and the coconut milk, add water if needed.
  • Season with fish sauce, cover and let it simmer until coconut oil comes out.
  • Or stop the cooking process when the veggies are done and you want to have more coconut milk sauce for the rice..mmmm!
  • Pair it with fried tilapia or any fish and enjoy!
