Pancit Pusit with Kamias and Chicharon

Pancit Pusit with Kamias and Chicharon |

Goodbye Typhoon Ambo! It was short and sweet. I was actually a bit worried kasi ang lakas ng hangin last night but thankful din it didn’t last long. There’s always a positive and a negative side when there’s a typhoon, I’m thankful for the much needed rain shower because it has been too hot the past few days AND I think it helped refill our Ipo dam. But I’m also saddened because some people in the provinces had to suffer and evacuate because of that.

Anyway, today is the first day of MECQ, and I heard that a lot of people went out. Hayssss!! I also read that a lot of the countries that reopened had an influx of infection and had to close again. Eto na naman po ako.. overthinking and worrying about what would happen to our country next.

Kung pwede nga lang nating i-kain na lang lahat ng worries natin no?

On a positive note, PhotoBucket is now working again! Woohoo! Kaya ayan, medyo maraming photo opp ang ating Pancit Pusit.

So what is Pancit Pusit?  Also called Pancit Choca or Pancit Ala Negra, Pancit Pusit is just like Pancit Bihon Guisado but I used squid and squid ink to make it flavorful and tasty and I garnished it with contrasting flavors of kamias (belimbi fruit) and crushed chicharon (pork cracklings) to enhanced the flavor.

I first tried it at Asiong Restaurant in Cavite and since I love anything squid, I thought it would be nice to recreate it in my kitchen. It turned out delicious but still needs a little tweaking to make it perfect.

What I did to make this is to cook like a bit soupy adobong pusit so the noodles can absorb a flavorful “stock”, making it flavorful as well. I miscalculated my need for squid ink, though, so next time I’ll stock up on more.

It’s a habit of mine to freeze the squid ink whenever I cook squid and don’t need it. So when I need it for other dishes, I tend to have more. This time though, I only have enough. I wanted the noodles sana to be a bit more black and have more squid flavor.

I hope you mommies give this a try. Ang sarap nya, promise!
