This is my simple Arroz Caldo with tokwa recipe. I prepare this for my family during winter because it helps us feel warm.I like mine spicy, so I put a lot of chili flakes. You can squeeze lemon or calamansi on top to make it taste better.


1½ cups white rice
5 cups water
3 cups chicken broth
1 whole chicken, chopped
2 thumbs sliced ginger
3 cloved crushed garlic
1 small chopped onion
3 tablespoons patis
6 pieces deep fried tofu (extra firm), cubed
½ cup green chopped onions
2 tablespoon cooking oil


Wash the white rice.
Heat the cooking oil.
Cook the ginger, garlic, and onion for 3 minutes.
Add the chopped chicken. Cook it until it turns medium brown.
Add the patis, rice, water, and chicken broth. Wait for it to boil.
Stir once in a while so that the rice will not stick on the botom of the pan. Cook this for 45 minutes until the consistency of the liquid becomes thick.
Top with cubed tofu and green onions.
Season with pepper and additinal fish sauce and chili flakes.
