    Baking Soda Solution


    Some few weeks ago I posted about REDUCED BAKING SODA as a replacement for lye water or lihiya in making kutsinta by baking the baking soda with correct procedure, but not all have oven to do it and they send me emails if there is another solution, so I started to think about it and came up with this.

    Now I will share the replacement of lye water or lihiya in cooking pichi pichi, it is very simple to do it. I will call this BAKING SODA SOLUTION, here is the recipe for it.
    In every 1 teaspoon of baking soda we put 4 cups of water and allow it to boil over high heat for 5 minutes.
    Make sure it will not overflow, so do not leave it unattended.


    Allow to cool and keep in a safe place. This is now ready to be used for pichi pichi, kutsinta and any food that needs lye water or lihiya in cooking.

    To use this for recipes remove the lye and replace the water with this.

    1. I will try this, hope it won't have a slight bitter taste to it just like the lihiya if you accidentally use more than what the recipe is asking for.

    6. Just follow the measurement of the cups of water needed in the recipe that you are going to try.
      Example, if it needs 2 cups of water then use 2 cups of baking soda solution.
