2. In a mixing bowl, combine all tikoy ingredients. Mix it well until well incorporated.
3. Transfer mixture into a greased square pan (don’t put too much or don’t make it too thick) and place it on a steamer rack.
4. Steam and cover pot for about 20-25 minutes over low heat. Do a toothpick test to check if its already cooked. Toothpick should come out clean.

Notes: Don’t forget to cover the top with foil or clean cloth to prevent water drippings.

Cooking Tips: You may also use finely grounded peanuts. For business purposes you may combine toasted sesame seeds with some toasted breadcrumbs as a filler to save on expenses.

Alternative Filling: Ube jam, peanut butter, chocolate, cheese, and or any favorite jam you like.
