I don’t know whether this popular Kapampangan dish originated in China or is a home-grown Filipino dish as I do see this a lot in Chinese style restaurants back in the Philippines but never saw it in Hong Kong when I worked there. I can also be of American origin and might be a hyped up version of the buttered vegetables, remember the Americans had stayed near the Pampanga region for quite some time. One thing I know though is that this dish is a very popular banquet dish back home during the 90’s so on special occasions like wedding, debut and graduation parties this is a main stay. It is a simple dish made out of mixed vegetables commonly peas, corn and carrots together with shrimps, cashews and quail eggs usually served as a side dish consumed together with other meat viands.
1 1/2 cup green peas
