Here is a wonderful gift idea for foodie friends and family members who wants to spice up their eating experiences. Super Lumba’s “Palapa” is a traditional Maranao dish made of native shallots, chili and ginger. Preparing it involves mixing it all together and beating it to a pulpy texture before cooking it on a low heated pan. It is a popular side dish to rice and almost every viands. Once you taste it, you might not want to eat anything else without a small serving of it on the table.
