Tips: Souring Ingredients

Cooking sinigang but don't have tamarind to sour it with? Don't panic! Souring ingredients like camias, batuan and santol - all of which are sour fruits - can be used.

If these are not available, leaves and blossoms can be used instead, such as the young and tender alibangbang leaves (bauhinia), mango leaves and young tamarind blossoms.

batwan, they say, is endemic to western visayas area. so if you're not around the area, this is probably your last choice hehehe.
