One whole chicken (around 1 kilo), cut up

9 cloves garlic, minced

1 onion, chopped

20 grams fresh ginger, peeled and cut into ½ inch chunks, each chunk given 2 firm pounds with a mortar and pestle

-8 stalks tanglad (lemongrass), use only the white part and smash this with the bottom of a heavy glass on your chopping board (don’t use the mortar and pestle, don't know why, be we don't, we like it smashed flat...ok, fine, use it if you don't want to g

Black peppercorns, pounded a bit in the mortar and pestle (I like this better than the pepper mill, at least for this dish)

3-4 tablespoons patis (fish sauce), to taste

One young (unripe) papaya, peeled and chopped (don’t forget to remove the seeds!)

A bunch of sili leaves (chili leaves)

The meat from 3 fresh coconuts

3 – 3 1/2 cups fresh coconut water

6 cups water or rice washing (got the rice washing tip from Market Manila, check out his great post on Binakol! Thanks Market Man, it worked brilliantly!)
