How to Make Arroz Caldo

Arroz Caldo is a Filipino congee (rice porridge or lugaw in Tagalog in the Philippines) which is a comforting bowl of chicken (or ox tripe) and rice soup flavored with ginger and served with spring onions and fried garlic pieces or bits.


¾ kilo or 1-1/2 lbs chicken, cut into stewing pieces or ½ kilo / 1.1 lbs ox tripe (librilyo or tuwalya), cleaned, boiled, and cubed

1 cup sticky rice (malagkit), washed

8 cups chicken stock/broth (you can use Maggi or Knorr broth)

6 cloves garlic, minced

½ piece onion, minced

1-1/2 inches ginger, peeled and sliced into ¼-inch rings

fish sauce (patis), to add taste

cooking oil or olive oil

2 pieces hard-boiled eggs, sliced into ¼-inch rings

2 stalks of spring onion, minced

lime or lemon slices, or calamansi cut into halves

Cooking directions:

Preheat pot with oil then sauté 2 garlic gloves, onion, and ginger over medium heat.

Add the chicken or boiled tripe then stir-fry.

Add the rice and chicken stock or broth.

Boil then lower the heat and stir occasionally until the rice and chicken are cooked.

Season with fish sauce. Set aside.

Fry the remaining garlic over medium heat until it’s golden brown.

Serve the arroz caldo warm with toppings such as toasted garlic, hard-boiled eggs, minced spring onion stalks, lime/lemon slices or calamansi halves, and fish sauce or soy sauce if you prefer.

      I enjoy this with fried lumpia on the side. What's amazing is you can find it almost anywhere in the Philippines.
