If we see people cooking this food by the sidewalks, that means its already Christmas. Here at home we’re celebrating Christmas early, because Lace did another home made cooking stunt and she perfectly cooked a Puto Bumbong that tastes similar to Via Mare hahahahaa.
so what is Puto Bumbong… oh I even googled it just to get the right spelling hhaha.
according to Wiki Pilipinas
”Puto Bumbong is a type of puto or rice cake named after the bamboo tube in which it is steamed. It is unusual among puto, being sticky and having a long thin shape and purple color. The elongated shape results from the method of cooking while its color comes from the violet pirurutong rice it is made of. It is served with grated coconut and brown sugar. Along with bibingka, it is often served outside churches around Christmastime. “
Lace cooked her own version of Puto Bumbong by not cooking it with steam inside a bamboo stem, but she did a roll mold and steamed it under the stove.
She got the idea when we started to complain that we have one seller of Puto Bumbong here in our area and sometimes the seller is jampacked with customers, you have to wait for hours for your turn to order and also wait till your Puto Bumbong is done. So my wife prepared the ingredients, and then she asked me to buy some ingredients in SM Supermarket, and after an hour here at home, she finally served to us the 1st batch of the home made Puto Bumbong!!
It was soft and chewy, and unlike to to other recipes that are a bit rough and easy to melt in our mouth, but Lace’s version will take more time in your mouth before it melts, you need to have more chewing power to taste the flavor and also enjoy it.
Merry Christmas to all! ahhahaha… up next… Bibingka ( I know she cooked this last year )
OMGG!! puto bumbong here at home… its expensive when you buy a set in the street and also in a restaurant too, but having a home made version is less expensive. Here at home, I can enjoy a 5 or 6 rolls of puto bumbong, but if I will buy one set in the street, that’s around Php45, and it got only 3 rolls of puto bumbong only. And that Php 45 can buy one ingredient that can give you 20 plus puto bumbongs.
