From time to time, I miss Filipino food. But it’s difficult to cook them when you don’t have all the ingredients needed. Luckily, there is a Chinese shop near us that sells imported Asian food. This ingredient has got a recipe that easy to follow and it’s very simple. Well, I recreate recipe by just adding anything like flavouring.
This one is what we call puto or it’s like a muffin. Puto is a type of steamed rice cake usually served as snack or as accompaniment to savory dishes such as dinuguan or pancit in Philippine cuisine and believed to be derived from Indian puttu of Kerala origin
