How to make Kutsinta


Kutsinta is one of my favorite Pinoy delicacies or kakanin. I always buy a pack (6 pcs) of these for breakfast with pancit bihon that you can buy in the neighborhood. This is a classic kutsinta with niyog. Ang sarap nakaka-miss!

This recipe is so quick and easy to do! #LetsCookMGR ?


Kutsinta Recipe


1 cup cassava flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup brown sugar
3 cups water
1 tbsp lye water
1 tsp atsuete seeds (optional pangkulay)



In a medium bowl, mix all the dry ingredients starting from the cassava flour, all-purpose flour, and brown sugar then mix all the ingredients.
Gradually add water  and continue mixing until all ingredients are well combined.
Mix lye water and anatto water (soak the anatto seed in 3 tbsp water) then continue mixing.
Place the mixture into individual molds and steam for 40 minutes to 1 hour. Check it with toothpick test in the center, if your toothpick comes out clean. Then it’s cooked.
Serve with fresh shredded coconut or cheese on top.
