    Gusto ko po siya i try lutuin, pero parang kulang po yung instruction ng paggawa, wala pong number 4. Yung mixture po ba pagtapos haluin at ilagay sa pan, mabubuo na siya, wala ng iba pang gagawin kundi patungan ng latik at ilagay sa ref? Thanks po

      Thanks for your comment and question. Namali lang yung numbering hehe! instead na 4 eh naging 5. Sa instruction # 3, continue lang ang paghalo hanggang mag-clear at mag-thicken yung mixture (about 15-20 minutes) under low heat para di masunog yung nasa ilalim ng mixture. Thank you for your interest to try. I appreciate it.
