Paraan ng Pagluluto ng Leche Puto:

Isalin ang hinalong mixture sa mga puto molds (lalagyan ng puto), maglagay ng 1/4 mixture.

Kapag nailagay mo na lahat ng mixture, ay ihanda na ang pausukan or steamer na paglulutuan ng leche flan. Kapag kumkulo na ang tubig ng steamer ay isalang na ang mga leche flan cups. Takpan ng tela ang ibabaw ng steamer at saka takpan. Pausukan ito sa loob ng 5 to 8 minuto gamit ang pinaka-mababang apoy. Makaraan ang limang minuto ay icheck kung luto na ang flan, kumuha ng toothpick at itusok sa gitna ng flan, kapag walang nanikit sa gilid ng toothpick ay luto na ito. Maari mo ng patayin ang apoy. Isantabi at palamigin muna ang mga flan.

Kumuha ng panibagong malaking mangkok, at pagsamahin ang rice flour, baking powder at kurot ng asin. Haluin maigi. Isalin ang tubig at ang egg mixture na isinantabi knina. Haluin maigi hanggang wala ng namumuong harina sa mixture.

Maari mo ng isalin ito sa mga molde ng nalutong leche flan. Magiwan ng palugit at huwag paabutin sa rim ng molde ang puto mixture. Huwag paapawin, mga ¾ lamang.

Ihanda muli ang steamer at kapag kumukulo na ay saka isalang ang mga puto mixture. Takpan ng tela ang ibabaw at takpan maigi ang steamer. Pasingawan ang puto gamit ang pinakamababang apoy sa loob ng 10 minuto.

I-check after 10 minuto, kumuha ng toothpick at tusukin ng bahagya sa gitna ng puto. At kung walang dumikit na mixture sa toothpick, ito ay luto na. Patayin ang apoy, tanggalin sa steamer ang mga puto at palamigin muna. Kapag malamig na ang puto ay maari na itong ibaligtad sa tray. Padaanan ng manipis na kutsilyo sa gilid at ska bahagyang itaktak pabaligtad.
