Well, it is made of rice, of course, and like a Siopao it is the only Puto with a filling inside. It has many types, but the one that we are selling is the most common in Biñan. It is round, compare to other. Sometimes is serve with a Cupcake tray. But selling it in a box and styrofoam is the best way.
