This recipe was my experience on how to cook adventures. Why? Because, I never cooked this kind of exotic food before. However, I ate such several times already. Thank goodness, my brother-in-law was kind enough to share some of their dishes. It was good tasting so I tried it for myself.
I had a hard time pulling the meats out of their shell. Did it easily later with the help of my husband’s sister. I never thought it was as simple as breaking the shell tail with hand pliers. Enough with my complaints and time for the recipe proper.
1/2 kilo paiti (snails)
1 cup squash, sliced
1 cup pako leaves (fern)
1 thumb size, sliced
1 medium head red onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups coco milk
1 green chili
salt to taste
Saute garlic, onion and ginger. Add squash and paiti. Stir constantly. Pour coco milk and boil until vegetable is tender. Add green chilli and cover the pan. Add the pako leaves. Serve hot.
