    Puto Maya

    This is a simple way of cooking puto maya, the original way of cooking this is more difficult but the taste is just the same with this version, I made this as simple as I can without jeopardizing the original taste. Try this and see it for yourself.

    Ingredients for 4-5 servings:
    2 cups violet glutinous rice ( tapol)
    2 1/2 cups coconut milk
    thumb size ginger ( crushed)
    pinch of salt
    1/4 cup sugar

    Procedure:
    1. Wash and drain the rice then put in a cooking pot together with the ginger and coconut milk. Let  boil then simmer until cooked like a normal rice.
    2.Once cooked, wrapped with wilted banana leaves in a triangular shape, then serve with sugar, to make it more special you can serve it with mango. Some also like it with hot chocolate.

      1. You tried this recipe and the rice won't cook? That's strange. When it starts boiling lower the heat and allow it to simmer, just like cooking the normal rice.

      2. Dear Ms. Mely:

        Can I use wild sweet rice for this recipe and rice cooker? Thanks.

      3. If wild sweet rice is also sticky, then you can use it, and you can cook it in rice cooker.

    5. Hi Melly. I have been looking for a puto maya recipe with ginger and I found yours. I would like to try your recipe. But can I use a white, normal glutinous rice instead of the violet kind?
