  • 1 kilo bago-ngon (one can also use igi – another kind of snail)
  • 1/2 kilo gabi
  • 1 bundle of takway
  • 1/2 cup kadyos (optional)
  • 2-3 pcs batwan (optional)
  • 1 cup gata (1st extraction)
  • 2 cups gata (2nd extraction)
  • Salt to taste


  1. Clean and prepare the bago-ngon by washing it thoroughly and cutting the ends so that it can “excrete” the waste. Wash again several time then soak in water for around 30 minutes. You can ask the vendor to clean it for you if ever.
  2. In a pot, place 2 cups of gata (2nd extract), gabi, takway, kadyos, bat-wan and bago-ngon.Add a small amount of water if needed.
  3. Boil for 25-30 minutes until the gabi softens and almost “melts” into the broth.
  4. Season with salt
  5. Pour in the remaining 1 cup of gata (1st extract) and simmer for another 5 minutes.
  6. Remove from heat, let it cool and serve with rice.
