ARROZ CALDO (Filipino Chicken Congee)




Kulinarya’s theme for the month of May 2011 is FLORES DE MAYO (Flowers of May).


I think the floral design of my toppings fits the KCC “Flores de Mayo” theme and I can’t help but post this recipe under this theme even though it has been more than a month late.

Arroz Caldo has been a favourite snack for many Filipinos while still growing up.  When I was studying high school in the Philippines, this is a “must eat” teamed up with Tokwa’t Baboy (Tofu/Pork Mix with Soy/Vinegar Dressing).  This is usually served as afternoon snack or when one is sick, it is also a good starter for babies who gets introduce for the first time to solids as the plain congee is easily digestible.

This dish brings me happy memories of cold rainy days and just hanging around with my high school pals after school.  I consider this as the Chicken Noodle Soup of the Philippines…feeds your soul as well as your tummy.
