A Twist on a Classic: Ginataang Langka with Dilis

Ginataang Langka with Dilis

It’s been almost three weeks of rain due to two typhoons that passed by the country. Dahil hindi makalabas, for us rainy days are a great opportunity to experiment in the kitchen. We try out new recipes we’ve been wanting to tackle or whip up some comfort food favorites so we can cozy up the living room to watch Netflix… hihihi. So for today’s ulam, we tried adding dried dilis to our Ginataang Langka instead of the usual pork.

Ginataang Langka with Dilis is a delightful creamy Filipino dish that combines the unripe jackfruit, the rich creaminess of coconut milk, and the savory dilis (anchovies). This dish offers a perfect balance of flavors and textures that will surely satisfy your taste buds.

My original plan was to fry the dilis and just top it on the Ginataang Langka. Kaya lang ito namang si Daddydoodledoo gusto ay kasama sa pagluto kasi parati syang nasusugatan ng malulutong na pagkain 😅 Kaya ayan, kasama na lang.


  • You can adjust the amount of dilis according to your preference for a stronger or milder flavor.
  • If you like a bit of heat, you can add chopped chili peppers or chili flakes to the dish.
  • This dish pairs well with steamed rice or can be enjoyed with adlai or cauliflower rice.

Try this twist on the classic Ginataang Langka and experience the delightful combination of flavors. Ano pa ang sinasahog nyo sa Ginataang Langka, mga momshies? Share nyo naman sa comments para ma-try ko rin.
