    I made it… its delicious! But i have concern , its kind a little bit bitter… i follow the instruction…i used the mc cornick ube extract 1 tbsp… i am wondering what might the cause that it becomes a little bit bitter?

    1. Hi Jane,
      I don’t have an idea where the bitterness is coming from since most ingredients have mild sweet taste.
      If you don’t mind me asking? Did you check the expiration date like for example the coconut milk or flavoring?
      Please let us know. Cheers!

    2. You can try making it the more traditional way with just the rice grains soaked in water then throw in food processor.

    1. Hi Tet,
      You can make the puto bumbong mixture a day ahead but don’t wrap in yet in foil and just wrap them when you’re ready to cook.
      Hope this helps. Cheers!

    1. Hi K-Anne,
      Yes, but make sure to store it in an airtight container or cling wrap. You can then wrap it in foil the next day for steaming.

    1. Hi Dj Budz,
      Thank you for trying our Puto Bumbong recipe and I’m glad that your wife love it.
      Happy Holidays and keep safe!

    1. Hi Annie, I haven’t tried it yet since I’m not sure how it will affect the taste and texture when steamed.

  3. Most other online recipes use water and do not use coconut milk. Can I use water only, or would your recipe with coconut milk taste far better than just water?

    1. Hi Catherine,
      Using coconut milk gives the puto bumbong a hint of coconut flavor unlike using just water. But it really depends on your preference but I personally like it with coconut milk for additional flavor profile. Hope this helps. Thanks for dropping by.

  4. I made this and the after steaming it, the grated dough merged together. It doesn’t have that grated/separated dough anymore. Any idea what went wrong?

    1. Hi Gel,
      How long did you chill the dough before grating? Try chilling it longer next time and work fast after removing from the fridge to keep the grain-like texture after steaming. Hope this helps

    1. Hi Leonora, Grating the dough gives it a bit of texture and mimics the grains in authentic puto bumbong. You can skip this step if you want. Hope this helps.
