In an Umagang Kayganda episode, award-winning author and celebrity chef Tatung Sarthou showed that it is possible to cook a seemingly elaborate dish using versatile pantry staples.

In the episode, the 'Philippine Cookery: From Heart to Platter' author shared how he cooks sarciadong isda, a dish that many might be surprised to know is actually quite easy to whip up.

After frying and setting aside a fish, he sauteed garlic, onion, and tomato. He added water and UFC Tamis Anghang Banana Catsup to make a tasty sauce. He then added fish sauce and beaten egg and poured the sauce on the fried fish.

As shown by award-winning Chef Tatung, UFC Tamis Anghang Banana Catsup is more than just a dip--it can also be used for cooking tasty dishes.

"Kayang-kaya nating pasarapin ang ating pritong isda gamit ang ating Tamis Anghang Banana Catsup," the culinary icon said.
