Guinataang Alimango at Langka

Philippines have an array of choices when it comes to seafood and vegetable curries, this one is one of the many variations and you have to trust me it is really good. This dish is made with crabs and young jackfruit cooked in coconut milk, it works well with freshly cooked jasmine rice and eating it the Filipino way only by hands.
