food tool: LANSUNGAN

Puto Bumbong Steamer

“Lansungan” plays an important part in making “Puto Bumbong”, a famous pinoy violet or purple-colored rice cake delicacy which is commonly sold during Christmas season specifically every “Simbang Gabi” or “Misa De Gallo”. “Lansungan” is a cylindrical-shaped “puto bumbong” steamer made of stainless steel or tin sheets with three circular holes on top where bamboo tubes filled with glutinous rice will be inserted and then wrapped with cheesecloth for steaming. Other “lansungan” has one, two, and four vent holes depending on the size of the steamer.
