What Is Sinigang, And What Is It Made Of?

Sinigang is a sour soup dish that typically uses tamarind, a tropical fruit from Africa, as a souring agent to get its flavor. It gets its name from the Tagalog verb “sinigang,” which means “to stew.” Sinigang is considered to be one of the most popular kinds of Filipino street food. Sinigang is compatible with all sorts of soup fixins, including beef, pork, fish, chicken, prawns, string beans, okra, eggplant, tomatoes, and so much more.

The recipe for sinigang has been through some changes over the years, so much so that it's not uncommon to replace tamarind with other souring agents like guava, calamansi, lemon, raw mango, santol, kamias, and even strawberries and watermelon. Not only that, but now you can find all sorts of sinigang variations, like sinigang rice, sinigang paella, sinigangbulalo, and so much more.
