3/4 sugar
40 g butter, melted
1 c fresh milk or evaporated milk
1/2  tsp pandan paste
1 drop of green food color

Put the puto mix in a bowl.
Add in all the dry ingredients except for the cheese.
Make a well in the middle.
Whisk in the butter, milk and egg.
Add in the pandan paste and food color. Mix well.
Grease a round pan or muffin moulds with butter.
Pour in the batter onto the moulds or pan.
Cover with foil.
Steam for 30 minutes from the time the water boils.
