  • 1 can (5.5 oz) tomato based sardines (I like using Ligo)

  • 1 medium size patola, sliced 
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 small onion, sliced thin
  • 1 tbsp cooking oil
  • 1/2 tsp ground pepper
  • salt to taste
  • 2-3 cups water


  1. Using a deep pot, heat and add cooking oil. 
  2. Add onions and garlic. Saute for few minutes until aromatic. 
  3. Add sardines with sauce. Stir gently and cook few minutes. 
  4. Add water and bring into a boil. Some misua do need more water so better to start with 2 cups of water and add more when needed. 
  5. Once it water starts to boil you can add the misua. Stir and cook for about 2 minutes. 
  6. Add slices of patola and stir gently. Cook for a minute or until patola is fully cooked. 
  7. Add ground pepper and taste test of more salt is needed. 
  8. Remove pot from heat and serve hot. Enjoy.
