      You can just omit the red wine if you want to it is not a big deal as long as the rest of the ingredients are still there one or two missing ingredients would not do any harm for sure.

    Hi anonymous, baka masyadong madaming baking powder nilagay mo. Or binuksan mo agad ung lid ng steamer pagkaluto.Dapat, pagkaluto, slightly open the lid lang, turn off the fire, tas after a minute or two saka mo buksan ang takip ng steamer mo para lumabas ung steam, at saka mo hanguin ung puto mo.
