  • 4 cups gata (coconut milk) / 1 large coconut

Note: These directions are minimal as much of the information is provided in the video above.

  1. Boil langka (jackfruit) for 10–15 minutes to remove dagta (sap). Then drain.
  2. Sauté onion, then garlic and ginger. Then add langka.
  3. Add pangalawang gata (thin coconut milk). Cover until tender.
  4. Add unang gata (thick coconut milk), sili (chili) and salt. Cover until gata (coconut milk) thickens.
