Finally, I had made them! I was even more pleased with the result (no cracks in the middle). I had a few attempts of experimentation though to make this Puto exactly how I wanted it to be, and I stuck to the original and main ingredients which are rice flour and coconut milk.
As mentioned above the main ingredients of Puto are rice flour or glutinous rice flour and coconut milk but as the time goes by a lot of food enthusiasts has altered and made some tweaks with the recipe to create a new texture, flavor or even the ways of cooking. These all depend on how exactly you’d like them done, modern or in a more traditional way.
These Puto (which means steamed rice cake) are very popular in the Philippines. They can be eaten alone or with freshly grated coconut meat. Nowadays people like to put cheese on top of them or dip them in colored sugar, it depends on how you like to eat them. My favorite way is with a hot coffee in the morning or afternoon.
