Fish Sinigang sa Kamias Tips
Now let me tell you how I learned this Sinigang sa Kamias Recipe. This is something I learned from my mother and have known how to cook it as long as I remember. I remembered when my mother would prepare the Sinigang dish. She would use fresh tamarind as her souring agent. She would boil it and squish out all the juice and add it to the broth.

It is also known as cucumber or sorrel tree. It is a tropical tree found naturally in Malaysia, Indonesia and in another part of Asia. It is used both for cooking and as a traditional medicine.
