Ube Kutsinta with no Lye water

 Alin ang naiba sa kutsinta? Naging Ube ano?
Kase nga" Most of us are familiar with the brown kutsinta or parang orange color,
this time i made a purple kutsinta..grabe bagay ang lasa

   At alam natin Kutsinta is popular of using lye water, and if possible i'm avoiding to use it.
so if you want to use lye water ,it is your choice.
and there's no artificial color added here but totoong kulay ng ube..

   so pumili kayo ng matingkad na ube,minsan kase may ube na maputla..
at don't worry , Ang lasa is masarap at lasa pa reng Kutsinta..bakit hindi nyo subukan ng malaman..

Less ube gets lighter ube kutsinta..
