Puto Calasiao Recipe

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup medium grain rice
  • ¼ cup glutinous rice
  • enough water to cover rice
  • ¾ cup + 1 tbsp sugar

Instructions
 

  • In a container (best to use an earthen ware bowl), combine medium grain rice, glutinous rice and water. Soak the mixture for 2 days.
  • Drain the rice reserving the liquid, place rice in food processor or blender then blend in high speed while slowly adding water a teaspoon at a time. Continue to blend and add water until the consistency resembles pancake batter. Once texture is smooth place mixture back to the container then cover with glad-wrap. Place small holes on the glad wrap by pricking it with toothpicks, this will let the mixture breathe during the fermentation process. Place in a warm place then let it ferment for 3-4 days.
  • After 3 or 4 days the consistency of the mixture would be thicker, gently fold sugar into the mixture.
  • Pour into greased mould then steam for 15-20 minutes.
  • Remove from moulds then serve.
