Cooking Recipe of Pansit Malabon Recipe (pancit palabok) Filipino Special

Another best Filipino special in the Luzon area of the Philippines is the Pansit Malabon.

This food is even very popular recently in all of the country.

Pansit or pancit malabon has many derivative names. In some places, it is called pancit luglug.

Others call it pancit palabok. It may refer to its origin which is the place Malabon, Metro Manila.

The dish is just related to pancit cooking.

There are four parts in the ingredients.

The noodles or the luglug, this is just the regular bihon noodles, are soaked with water for few minutes and later put into a boiling water.

When we say palabok, this means the sauce from shrimp juice with thick cornstarch. It has coloring added which is orange mixed with annatto.

The saltiness or paalat are also made of shrimp juice, ground meat, tufo, little food coloring-orange, and annatto.

Toppings are the exciting part.

Garnish with smoked fish flakes, shrimps, cracklings and more.

Arrange and serve with the blanching of boiled noodles. It is then topped with the paalat and palabok sauce.

Using Thick Bihon

Pansit Malabon also uses thick bihon or rice noodle just like spaghetti and also soaked in boiling water.

Palabok and paalat are cook quickly to mix directly to the noodles to penetrate inside the noodle strands.

Same procedure for the toppings of your choice. Many people preferred seafood as their delicious toppings.
