#Recipe of the Day: Pansit Habhab

Pansit habhab is the ALL-TIME favorite merienda of people living in Quezon province particularly in Lucban and Lucena City. Yes, I am a certified Lucenahin!

Pansit habhab is basically made of dried flour noodles. It’s our own type of miki. It is thin and brown in color. This is popularly served in Buddy’s Restaurant (Sponsor please, haha!) and in Lucban or Lucena, pansit habhab are being sold in streets or peddled around the area.

This is usually eaten without any utensils. It is served in a banana leaf and then you eat it directly from that. When you say habhab that means to eat suctioning the food like pigs. Yes, you read it right. Hahaha!

1 head garlic, minced

1 tbsp garlic powder

  • Mix them all until well-blended.

picsart_11-06-02.35.25.jpg

  • Some gets a portion of the mixture and fry it to know if they still need to adjust the taste before wrapping. In my case, I just bring the mixture very close to my nose and smell it. If it smells good, it’s good to go. Weird eh? Do you have your own way to try your mixture? Share it with us.
  • To start wrapping, lay a piece of spring roll wrapper and scoop a tablespoon of the mixture, spread it horizontally about an inch above the bottom of the wrapper.
  • Get the bottom of the wrapper and flip it over the mixture.
  • Fold both sides toward the center, then roll it up.
  • To seal the wrapper, you can either brush it with beaten egg, cornstarch mixture or even just plain water.

  • Repeat the procedure until you finish all the mixture.

That’s it! Deep-fry it and serve right away. You can also store it in plastic containers and put them in your freezer for future consumption. This can be stored for a week.

 

It is one of the best make-ahead dishes for your family or even as “baon” of your kids at school. It’s best served with sweet and sour sauce or sweet and chili sauce… or just with plain ketchup! 🙂
