In the Philippines, puto is a cake made of rice flour. In tagalog it means food but in Spanish the term puto means homosexual. I think it is some kind of opposite to the word puta which is a cuss word as we know.

Some even equate puto for a good for nothing person or a moron.

Puto remains to be a delicious Filipino food even if it shares its name with a Spanish term with a not so pleasing connotation. I like the puto pao version. Puto pao is a a cross between puto and the Chinese steamed bun called siopao. It usually has asado filling although one can also use a variety of fillings for it.

Hmmm, I didn't really expect that puto is the counterpart of puta in Spanish. On the other hand, puto is really delicious and I like eating them with ice cream. Sometimes I eat them with coconut shreddings just like Kutsinta.

Puto is a steamed rice cake popular in the Philippines. Steaming, a popular cooking method in this country along with boiling and roasting, was incorporated in Filipino cuisine and cooking by other Asian countries. Rice is the main ingredient in this dish. Puto is usually eaten as a dessert, but can also be eaten for breakfast dipped into or paired with cup of hot coffee or hot chocolate.
