The said „Taro“ is from Tahitian. In my country-Philippines, Taro is called „Gabi“. A popular rendition of the Taro is „Laing“ which originates from the Bicol region in Southern Luzon. Here I cooked the tubers, stem or stalk, and few leaves. Seasoned with just salt not with fermented shrimp or fish Bagoong. But it is heavily spiced with red, green and orange chili’s or sili. Thank you so much for watching and please don’t forget to subscribe to my YOUTUBE CHANNEL.
