Sautéed Mung Beans (Munggo Guisado) Recipe

1 1/2 cup munggo (mung bean)
3 pcs tinapa
1/4 kilo ground pork - optional
Chicharon - optional
Bitter Gourd - optional
Medium onion
4-5 cloves of garlic

Wash and soak mung beans overnight. I found this new way to soften munggo by using pressure cooker for 15 minutes. Once done set aside.

In a separate pot, sauté onion, garlic and tinapa for 5 minutes. You can also put the ground pork by this time. Mash munggo using a strainer.

Add 1-2 cups of water and bring it to a boil. Stir it occasionally so the beans will not stick to the pot.
Season to taste. 

Put out the flame and then add crushed chicharon on top.

WILL: Well, sautéed mung beans is a big no-no in our family. Why? My mom arthritis will surely kick her knees off to night of pain. 
      So when I got married and lived far far away from my mom, once in a month I asked Abbey to cook this for me. 
      The soup this favorite viand of mine somewhat relaxes my brain cells. Haha! Abbey have different variations but nothing beats the sautéed mung beans with half cooked sliced bitter gourd.  
      Thanks baby!
