From Ojet’s Lecheng Maja Blanca to Lecheng Inutak, The Grocer by OLM now offers authentic Puto Bumbong just in time for the start of the Christmas season. Yes, Christmas starts early in the Philippines making it one of the longest Christmas seasons in the world. I mean come on, who wouldn’t get excited in counting down 100 days before Christmas? With what’s happening in 2020, I believe you need something great to look forward. The question now is, are you ready to taste Christmas? You see, Puto Bumbong is a Filipino purple rice cake steamed in bamboo tubes traditionally sold during the Christmas season. But since we need to stay home, let me share with you a great solution.
From the maker of Lecheng Maja comes to another great culinary invention called Lecheng Inutak. Direk Ojet recently released his newest addition to his gourmet kitchen. Like his first creation, the Lecheng Inutak also comes with layers and layers of goodness. But first, what is Inutak? Inutak is a Pateros delicacy also known in neighbouring Taguig City. It is made of sticky rice mixed with coconut milk and coconut cream baked over a charcoal fire. Ojet’s Lecheng Inutak, on the other hand, offers a fresh new spin!
Who loves maja blanca? How about maja blanca with a twist? The other day my family and I got to try Ojet’s Lecheng Maja. No, I’m not cursing you. It’s really called Lecheng Maja. Ojet’s Lecheng Maja is made from pure coconut milk, fresh corn and milk. Besides this creamy white layer, there is also a layer of leche flan at the bottom.
