Filipinos love garlic that why if you are observant you will notice that most of the Filipino dishes that I had posted here on my blog have garlic on them. We so love our garlic we use fried garlic to garnish some of our dishes; we even have garlic flavour in our chips and peanuts.
Garlic is not just a very flavourful culinary item but it also have some medicinal use and health benefits that why when an oily dish is served in Philippines they put a lot of garlic to it because there’s a popular saying that this balances out the bad stuff. Which is true and some claims are supported by scientific studies that garlic has been found to prevent heart disease and cancer. It also has some antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal properties to it, that why you see some food supplements that is made out of garlic oil.
Now this simple dish might not alleviate any heart related diseases you may have but trust me this is a good comfort food which can be used as an appetizer, side dish or even pair it with an ice cold beer.
