How to cook Kadyos Manok Ubad soup
Kadyos Manok Ubad Recipe – In Filipino cuisine, when using native chicken as the main ingredient, the first thing that comes to mind is that hearty soup dish called Tinolang Manok. Native chicken (free-range chicken) meat is ideal in cooking soup dishes since it has its distinct rich taste that gives a delicious and unique flavor than those raised ordinary chickens.
Though in this recipe, we will make an equally delectable and flavorful dish called Native Chicken with Banana Ubad and Kadyos or known as “KMU,” which stands for – Kadyos, Manok, and Ubad. The name refers to the three main ingredients used in the dish: kadyos (pigeon peas), manok (chicken) and ubad (the edible inner layers of a banana stalk).
This Kadyos Manok Ubad chicken soup is one of the well-loved and demand dishes by Ilonggos here in the Philippines. We also recommend that you try the pork version Kadyos Baboy Langka Recipe or “KBL”. Kadyos is a type of legume that looks like a small black bean known as pigeon peas or black-eyed peas. This a popular ingredient used by Ilonggos in Western Visayas, particularly in Aklan and Iloilo City.
