4 tsp lihia or lye water, P22.50 for 250g, available in supermarkets
2 cups pandan juice
8 tsp butter
2 cups brown sugar
Freshly grated coconut as topping
Mix the butter and sugar.
Sift the all-purpose flour and cassava flour.
Combine these with the mixed butter and sugar.
Pour the pandan juice and lihia and mix again until the texture is smooth.
Pour into a muffin pan or shallow bowls, making sure to leave room at the top.
Steam for 20 minutes.
You may sell this with grated coconut on the side.
Tip: Be careful about the amount of lihia you put in, studies have shown that too much of it can actually cause corrosive burns in one’s esophagus and stomach.
How Much Will You Make
Homemade kutsinta sells for P1.50 per piece, although you may sell them in packs of 12 and charge an even P20 per pack. Kutsinta spoils easily, so make sure you only make what you can consume in half a day.
