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.

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.
