It is the newly sprouting stalk of gabi (taro) that is slender and its fresh young leaf still unrolled. Daludal is harvested and cooked into a variety of vegetable dishes, much like that of Ilocano aba.
In Negros and Panay islands where it is called takway, it is often boiled then seasoned with suka (vinegar) and asin (salt) or included in making Ilonggo laswa (boiled assorted vegetables).
The stalks can also be cooked with coconut milk to become ginataan or made into adobo by simmering the cutlets in vinegar and soy sauce with or without sagpaw or sahog.
