Kareng Ingles is a Filipino dish prepared with chicken and tropical vegetables such as snake beans, okra and bok choy in coconut milk.
Let me present you another lesser known Filipino dish called Kareng Ingles, a local dish in Laguna where chicken or other proteins like pork and shrimps together with vegetables like snake beans, okra and bok choy are cooked in soup infused with coconut milk. It may look like a ginataang manok but the ingredients are quite different, vegetables used in this dish are the vegetables commonly used in kare kare but instead of peanut based sauce, coconut milk is used. The name Kareng Ingles when directly translated to English means “English Curry” and I am not sure why is it named like such. There are no references online on its history so I can’t elaborate it further but on observation, it is like a dish where three popular dishes are joined into one, the Kare Kare, Ginataan and Tinola.
It’s quite a simple yet tasty dish where it is prepared like tinola where garlic, onions and ginger are sauteed before adding the rest of the dry ingredients before it is cooked in coconut milk. The result is like a creamy tinola that is of course perfectly paired with rice.
I like that coconut milk based soup (sauce?). It looks so flavourful and very moreish.
Interesting! Makes me think of those fish head noodles at some places in Malaysia – they add coconut milk to the broth so it is white like this. I love it!
What a great looking dish, and not that complicated to make.
You can never go wrong with curry! I do wish I had access to those fantastic veggies. I’ve never seen snake beans around here, sadly.
Oh, this sounds (and looks) delicious, Raymund! I’m not familiar with snake beans, but I’m sure I could sub in another kind of bean. This is the kind of comfort food that I love!!
Love the way this looks! Bet it tastes better. 🙂 Thanks for the comment.
this sounds very tasty raymund. It does sound like an english curry – very mild and with coconut milk. delish i’m sure.
It looks so good and so comforting, Raymund. I love every and anything made with coconut milk!`
sounds great! will try this! cannot eat beans, but maybe i will sub with squash 🙂 to add some “color” 🙂
Looks Good! This is one of my fave. Whenever my mom cook this i always have an extra rice. Good job!
