Lusog Notes

This dish is a good source of iron and vitamin C. Iron is needed for normal metabolism while vitamin C helps fight common infections and enhances absorption of iron in the body.

Chef's Tip

The galapong dries up easily when exposed to air so keep a moist towel to cover it during preparation.
