Lelang

This is a noodles recipe from the Eastern Visayas Region VII. If you are living or brought up from the Central Luzon are where the dialect it tagalog, you will wonder if Lelang is a dish or a word use to mock somebody by saying “lelang mong panot”. I think it also an Indonesian word. Anyway you will be surprise what this dish is. Actually it is a counterpart of pancit sotanghon which the ingredients are almost the same as lelang but it has a mixture of mung beans or toge. I think that is the only difference to the well known pancit sotanghon. I suggest you try it if you really want to try something new to your menu.
