How to Make Monggo Soup at home

Growing up, we would always have Monggo soup on fridays and to be honest I didn’t like it back then. When you’re a kid, it’s one of those things that they force you to eat. But when I started working, I finally appreciated this simple dish thats best paired with fried fish and white rice.

So we made our own version of this dish that you can easily make at home.
