Ok, so I was craving sinigang for weeks. I LOVE the hot maasim soup, and I can just imagine finishing bowls of it now in this horrific weather. Comfort food, in short. Anyway, I decided to try my best to concoct my very own sinigang, inspired by my favorite Pinoy restaurant NamNam: with watermelon!
But first things first, I checked out www.maggi.ph for recipes. Every week, they share new and exciting savory recipes through Maggi Magic Recipe Cards. So I need to know the basics muna on how to cook the simple sinigang dish--bago ko maeexperimentuhan and add my own input to the recipe.

Last Sunday, our family's Grocery Day, I got my own cart and bought my ingredients. I decided to create the perfect rendition of this dish for me: Vegetable (only) Sinigang!

It was my first time to cook sinigang (mas enjoy ako pag pasta), but it's the easiest task! Especially na vegetarian version sha, cooking meat may take a while, but eto ang bilis!

Add the Magic Sinigang, and your Magic Sarap to taste. That's it!
When the watermelon's tangy taste mixes thoroughly na with the Maggi Sinigang sabaw, super sarap na nya! :)
