Braised Pork and Coconut milk (adobo sa gata)

Braised pork and coconut milk(adobo sa gata)……………For some who doesn’t know yet, adobo can be cooked using coconut milk. It is the same version and cooking style of adobo just add coconut milk. I would say that this is the spicy version of adobo as some parts in the Philippines love to cook dish with coconut milk and lots of chillies. Chillies should be chopped but since I had a little daughter who is now learning to eat spicy dishes, I did not chopped my chillies. This is a must try recipe…………………..Did you know that coconut milk is a good substiute for a yoghurt and milk and it doesn’t go off quickly. Coconut milk contains anti-oxidants that stop it going rancid. An unopened can of coconut milk won’t go bad for many months. If it is opened and has an inconsistent thickness that is because the thin and thick milk has separated, not that it has gone off. Although coconut milk  is highly nutrient when ingested, as well as when used typically on skin and hair. Applying coconut milk to the hair supplies it with necessary nutrients to grow and provides optimal conditioning. Massaging the scalp with coconut oil can treat dandruff and dry, itchy skin. Applied to the rest of the body, coconut milk moisturizes and restores healthy skin and repairs wrinkles and sagging, and can also treat skin infections and wounds as an antifungal and antibacterial.
