Just like karabasa, the fruit, leaves (tops, shoots) and flowers of kabatiti can be made, three-in-one, into a sumptuous dinengdeng. This is new to some, even to some self-confessed Ilokano dinengdeng connoisseurs. So it's really worth a try, to prove that it's really edible and palatable.

|So green, so yellow...|
|Follow the dinengdeng way, boil bugguong, put in the sliced fruit first, cook, then put in the tops and flowers just before putting off fire and serving. Here, I added some bits of gamet to enhance flavor and aroma.|
|Naimas, sumam-it ti digona!|
