Salukara is a widely popular delicacy in Borongan City, Samar Leyte.
The Salukara is a cross between a hotcake, bibingka and puto. It looks like a hotcake but taste like a bibingka or puto. It is a delicacy for snack and breakfast. But Boronganons usually eat it at breakfast.
Since it is popular in Borongan City and its neighboring municipality almost all the market stalls sells it. It may be sold hot and fresh from the pan or you can also buy it in the afternoon when it’s already firm and bread-like.
It is named Salukara because it is caught (salo) and cooked in a pan (karaha).
To cook your very own Salukara just follow the recipe below:
- 2 ½ kilos of premium rice, finely grounded.
- 2 cups of coconut milk
- 2 cups of water
- 1 glass of tuba
- Mix the finely grounded rice and other ingredients making a slightly runny mixture. Brew the mixture for 5-6 hours.
- Heat the pan in low flame. Once hot, grease it with cooking oil, then pour the mixture.
- When the top part is already cooked and specked with bubbles, remove from pan. No need to turn over.
- Cooked for about 4 minutes.
Then you can eat your very own home-made Salukara freshly cook from the pan.
