I cooked Sinigang na Hipon using the synchronized cooking function of my Tiger Tacook Rice Cooker JBV-B18F. You will love the convenience.
In a recent #SoMoms event with Tiger, the well-loved brand of our moms, I got introduced to a whole lot of new small appliances The Tiger Tacook is one of them. So how did I cook this using the TaCook? Well, the TaCook rice cooker can cook side dishes using high temperature steam generated when cooking rice. The TaCook comes with an orange cooking plate for cooking the side dish, an inner pan for rice, and the microcomputerized rice cooker.
Prepare the ingredients first. The TaCook can synchro-cook for two people but rice can be prepared for more than four people. A bonus is the TaCook came with a recipe book . The Shrimp sinigang is titled “Sour Shrimp soup”.
Shrimp (head and shell on)- 150 grams
Satoino (Taro or Eddoe corm )- 40 grams (I used gabi)
Okra, cut diagonally- 40 grams
Tomato, cut into wedges- 40 grams
Ginger – 3 slices
Garlic, sliced – 1 piece
Tamarind water – 2 tablespoonsn ( I added more though)
Fish sauce – 1 teaspoon
Water- 120 ml
How to make tamarind water
1. Put the tamarind fruits in three times their volume of lukewarm water
2. Knead the fruits by hand until they turn into paste.
3. Remove seeds and peels before use.
1. Place, the shrimp satoimo, okra, tomato, garlic and ginger on the cooking place. Pour well-mixed soup evenly over the ingredients.
2. Put the washed rice and water in the inner pan, and set in the rice cooker.
3. Set the cooking plate in the inner pan. Press the [Synchro-cooking] key.
4. When cooking is completed, mix well and transfer to the bowl.
The rice is cooked. The sinigang is read to eat. It is that simple! This is ideal for a couples, solo dwellers or those who are too busy and want to cook their food and rice at the same time.

Micro computerized cooking allows me to enjoy multi rice cooking, slow cooking and even steaming. In slow cooking, it can keep boiling for 180 minutes at longest maintaining 92 C high temperature. Steaming is great way of cooking and I can set steaming for 60 minutes at its longest time.
