Butsi Butsi

Here's what I've got from the market today... Butsi-Butsi (buchi-buchi)... The filling is made out of mashed cassava(sweetened), wrapped in a flour based dough and then deep fried. Quite different from the Chinese buchi which is made out of sweet sticky rice balls stuffed with red sweet bean paste and rolled in sesame seeds.

I asked my Tatay(father) why is it called butsi-butsi, he said maybe because it is like the gizzard of a chicken which is butsi in Tagalog.


Love it when it's hot!!! S^_^S
