How to Make Filipino arroz caldo (chicken rice soup)
This video shows how to cook Arroz Caldo the panlasangpinoy way. Arroz Caldo (literally translated as warm rice) is a type of congee (or lugaw) that closely resembles the risotto. Though ,this dish is of Chinese origin, the (new) name was actually given by the Spaniards ,because of pronunciation issues.
The use of chicken (cut into individual servings) makes Arroz Caldo different from other congees. Safflower (wild saffron), toasted garlic, and scallions are added to add flavor.
