Putok or star bread is a dense bread roll from the Philippines made with all-purpose flour, milk, and salt. It is typically dusted with coarse white sugar. It is a variant of pan de monja (monáy) distinguished primarily by the crown or star-shaped top of the bread resulting from a cross-shaped cut on the dough prior to baking. The name literally means "explosion" or "fissure" in Tagalog.
