Puto (Steamed Rice Muffins) is a easy snack food in which the ingredients are available in supermarkets. Traditional puto is made up of rice flour (galapong). However, we can also make puto out of the ordinary all purpose flour.
To have good result, it would be better if you can have good quality branded flour. We can even make our puto looks nice by adding toppings such as cheese or slices of salted egg, or the combination of both. Puto is also perfect match to our very own Dinuguan dish.

Do not put two layers of steamer pan in one setting. Water vapor may drip from the upper pan and moisten the mixture in the lower pan, otherwise you need to put cheese cloth in between layer of steaming pan to catch water drip.
