I am a Kapampangan. A friend of mine said that they put ampalya on their Kare-kare and that is the real Kapampangan way. I'd been eating Kare-kare all my life and never had it with apalya. Do they really put apalya?

OMG!!! Please don't put apalya! I never heard or never had kare-kare with apalya! I am from San Fernanado , Pampanga and our past-time is cooking…lol. We always have big occasions and kare-kare always on the table and never seen an apalya in it!

I'm not sure why but some Filipinos also use okra and ginger. I grew up eating kare kare with only eggplants, pechay, long beans and banana heart. I was born and raised in ANgeles City and my family were mostly from Magalang (Dizon)
