    Ginataang Bagongon

    Are you good at eating these shells called bagongon or telescope shell in English? I am a good eater of telescope shell because we always have it since I was young, I love sucking it when the meat of the shell and the flavor of the coconut milk touched your tongue and pallate together, "Lami" (yummy).

    1/2 kilo bagongon
    thumb size ginger
    1 small onion
    1 cup thin coconut milk ( ikalawang piga)
    1/2 cup pure coconut milk ( kakang gata)
    1 bunch swamp cabbage ( kangkong) or talbos ng camote
    salt to taste

    1. Cut the tip of the shell then wash well.
    2. In a pot put the thin coconut milk, ginger, chili and onion then stir and bring to a boil, when boiling add the telescope shell (bagongon) then simmer for 5 minutes.
    3. Add the swamp cabbage ( kangkong) and simmer until half cooked then add the pure coconut milk and salt to taste then simmer until done.
    4. Serve and enjoy. :-)
