kalintubo


KALINTUBO is another Maguindanaon budget meal, similar to pastel or paster, that is made with freshly boiled plain rice (i.e., steaming hot) and topped with a spoonful of stir-fried chicken cutlets or chopped chicken adobo, and then wrapped in banana leaf in a style that simulates a volcano - open on top. 


The opening allows the hot rice to cool off without trapping the moisture, which was intended to keep the dish from getting spoiled fast.

Kalintubo is often eaten also with boiled chicken egg as additional pair to rice.

You can eat the kalintubo meal either using your fingers, provided you wash your hands first, or with spoon and fork. The banana leaf would serve enough as dining plate, though most would prefer to serve and dine kalintubo on plate.
