Chef's Note

Filipinos usually press the cooked onion and garlic through a sieve to make a sort of purée for the sauce, but you could also put everything into a blender.

Serve with white rice to which you’ve added some chopped green onion or shallot.

For a more exotic flavor, add some small pieces of fruit.
