Transcript

I think there is something magical about eating crabs. Yung mga pag mga magbabarkada kayo, tapos ang ihahain alimango. Lahat ng kaartehan sa katawan natatanggal, because lahat tayo nagkakamay. Later on, I’m going to show you how to create this magical alimango dish kasi ang gagawin natin yung fresh na gata i-inffuse natin with the flavors of garlic, ginger and also siling pangsigang, para tamang-tamang kagat lang, and of course my secret ingredient talaga na nagpapasarap sa lahat ng linuluto ko ang Maggi Magic Sarap.

Okay, mag-boboil muna tayo ng ating alimango. According to my cook, ang pinaka-bongga daw na alimango, ang hingiin yung bakla. Pero some like yung sobrang ma-aligue talaga, so yun yung babae pero kung yung gusto mo na tamang portion lang, okay ito eh.. This will take anywhere from maybe… kasi ang lalaki eh, mga eight to ten minutes ito.

Oil – you can use any type but I prefer either vegetable or canola, ‘pag ganito na I’m cooking with gata.

We want to infuse the oil with the garlic, at gusto natin na medyo magbrown na ng konti ang garlic but not over… [Scene cut]

… ‘Yan, yung naaamoy-amoy mo lang, that’s what you want to achieve. Ito yung ating ginger. Ang ginger nagtatanggal ng lansa. It’s super important ‘pag ganitong mga crustaceans ang liniluto natin. So, ilalagay ko na. At ilalagay natin. This is yung siling pangsigang. If you want to be more adventurous, at mas maanghang ka, sometimes at home ang ginagawa ko, linalagyan ko pa ng labuyo.

Honestly ah, sinabi sa ‘kin na dapat sabihin ko na yung fresh, ang bongga. So sa totoo lang pwede na yung canned. I’m saying that only because naaawa naman ako dun sa mga manonood sa atin na sobrang busy ang mga lives, all those working women. So I don’t want to torment you, gamitin niyo na lang yung delata, pwede na yan. It’s practically the same. But.. this’ the first. This is the sauce na gagamitin natin ha. The second. Para lumambot na siya, the kalabasa. You can also put, I think, eggplant, and sitaw if you like.

Once kumukulo ito, yung oil na manggagaling dun sa coconut milk at sa coconut cream, ‘yun yung nagpapasarap talaga so you want that oil to come out. But what really makes everything so much more special for me is Maggi Magic Sarap, whether it’s seafood, whether it’s chicken, whether yung liniluto ko yung ganito na masarsa, or whether nagfr-fry lang ako, perfect siya.

Simmer our sauce. This is really for pasta, pero you can also use it nga for seafood, para madali na lang ang life. Hmm.. usually… [edited]

Let it cool for a bit tapos pwede na natin i-chop na yan at lialagay ko na siya dito sa sauce. What I’m going to do, yung crab, ilalagay natin… sa ating gata. We want to incorporate the sauce very well. Again kung gusto niyo dagadagan ah, yung level ng anghang nito you can put the siling labuyo. Pero remember also na we’re maintaining the flavor of the crab kasi… [scene cut]

… the great thing talaga about Maggi Magic Sarap is hindi niya inaalter yung taste ng food, lalo lang [slurred] niyang pinapasarap.

Ohhh.. may magic.. Ohhh… sarap. So this is ready for plating. Kung gusto niyo nga pala, pwede rin na mas pinukpok pa, lalo na yung mga sipit, para mas madali when you have guests. Ang nakakatuwa ‘pag nagseserve ako parang sinasabi nilang lahat talaga “nagawa mo na yan?” but kung tinimingan niyo ‘di ba? It didn’t take long. Yun yung magic na binibigay talaga ng Magic Sarap. Sabi ko hindi ko guguluhin pero gusto ko nang guluhin para matikman ko. Ay, my god. Ang saya, ang sarap. Kumagat talaga yung flavor at yung lasa. nandun talaga yung sarap na hinahanap natin. Nako, you can really cook like a queen, because of Maggi Magic Sarap. Until next time. See you.

Note: she uses the word pangsigang which is acceptable, but it maybe noted pansigang is considered standard.A “bakla” crab, literally a male homosexual crab, is a crab wherein the gender is neither distinctly male nor distinctly female when examined from the outside.
