Ampalaya with Coconut Milk

Ampalaya with Gata (Coconut Milk) Recipe

- 2 coconuts
- 2 cups water
- 1/2 to 1 cup bagoong alamang (shrimp paste)
- 3 medium-sized ampalaya
- 2 cloves garlic, whole unpeeled

- Wash ampalaya well and slice into 3/4-inch squares after removing seeds. Do not wash after slicing.
- Extract milk from coconut, using the 2 cups water.
