Molo Soup

My mom used to cook Molo Soup on almost every occasions back home when I was a kid. It was a sure hit for everyone! From my recent vacation in the Philippines, I once again tasted her culinary expertise, especially with this dish on her birthday. I wonder why I didn't even tried it yet, where in fact it is so easy to cook and the ingredients are not difficult to find - almost effortless!

After few weeks of being back to reality that I am here in UAE, I already miss everything in the Philippines. And to help relieve my change of weather sickness, first thing I got in mind was to cook Molo soup. Well, my husband loves it! It was indeed a comfort food.
