Ingredients


2 uncooked cups rice
2 cups water
1 cup white sugar
1 cups coconut milk
1/2  tsp salt
3 teaspoon baking powder
banana leaves or greased baking cups


Instructions


Soak rice overnight in 2 cups of water and then drain the rice and add 1 cup coconut milk then grind to consistency of thick batter. 

Add sugar, salt and baking powder after you finish grinding the rice.

Fold the batter using a rubber spatula, do not stir. Folding the ingredients creates small packets of bubbles that will make your puto fluffy, cover it and let it ferment for about 4 hours and (mix) fold in again.

Line the molds with banana leaves then pour the batter 2/3 full.

Arrange in steamer and steam for 30 minutes or if toothpick inserted in center of puto comes out dry.
