Philippines – Adobong Hipon – Shrimp Adobo


Adobo is one of the foods most associated with the Philippines, and in fact, adobo is considered the ‘national dish’ of the Philippines.  As all adobo recipes  this  includes a quintessential vinegar-based adobo marinade/sauce.

I prepared this for our virtual travel tour around the word without any high exceptions and I’me more than impressed about the result! This has been enjoyed very much and my guest loved this as well.


  • 2 cups shrimp (hipon), peeled and cleaned
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 3 tbsp vinegar ( I used white balsamico)
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/4 tsp powdered pepper
  • 3 tbsp cooking oil
  • salt to taste

Konju Theeyal- Shrimp in a Spicy Roasted Coconut Curry


This is a delicious, and quick curry, easy to assemble and full of taste.

I had the curry leaves in the freezer and I substituted the fresh coconut by dry one. After roasting the coconut with the spices I added water and blended it well. I blended it again after 5 minutes that the coconut adsorbed the water.

For decoration and little color I added a few halved cherry tomatoes just before serving!

Great recipe Parvathy


Prawns – 10 to 12 numbers if small , if tiger prawns use 7 or 8
Tamarind- a small gooseberry size
Grated coconut- half cup ( I used dried, but I added half cup water before blending)
Whole pepper corns- 1 teaspoon
Paprika – 1 /2 teaspoon
Coriander powder – 1 teaspoon
Turmeric powder- a pinch
Coconut Oil- 1 teaspoon
Onion – if using small onions just 2 , if using big white onions 1 tablespoon chopped
Curry Leaves – 2 sprigs (about 12 leaves)
