The Making of Puto Maya

I chanced upon this guy¬†steaming glutinous rice and about to make puto maya in Carbon Market. Here’s a photo narration in the right sequence of this guy’s method in making puto maya.

Steam the glutinous rice (bugas pilit) al dente in the caldero

image

In a sando plastic bag covered hand, use plastic plate to transfer the steamed pilit into a tub

image

Prepare a mixture of coconut milk (gata) and sugar with salt

image

Pour the gata onto the cooked pilit

image

Mix well the gata with the cooked pilit using the versatile plastic plate

image

Put the well mixed pilit back in the caldero

image

After putting everything back, steam again until fully cooked. From what I gather from the guy’s conversation with another person, this puto maya was ordered for a wake
