You can talk to kids from the provinces what a buchi is and they will all convey to you it is a delightful snack. It’s 1 of my favorites when I was nonetheless a schoolgirl and I enjoy it right up until now. As a mom, I get ready it at home often for my loved ones to delight in this delightful and chewy merienda (Tagalog phrase for snack). You can also serve it as a dessert but most Filipinos consider it during snacktime.
It is really effortless to get ready and any person who has experimented with frying can do it. I used to feel that it is challenging to get it perfect. But when I experimented with it (utilizing my aunt’s recipe), it was exactly how I required it to be. Just the same as the buchi that I acquired from the university canteen when I was nonetheless a minimal woman.
