Suman is a rice cake originating in the Philippines. It is made from glutinous rice cooked in coconut milk, often wrapped in banana leaves or buli or buri palm leaves for steaming. It is usually eaten sprinkled with sugar or laden with latik.
- 3 cups glutinous flour
- ½ cup white sugar
- 1 can coconut milk (14.5 oz)
- Banana leaves for wrapping
- Cooking spray
- Combine flour, sugar and coconut milk in a mixing bowl. Combine well until its pasty and pliable.
- Clean banana leaves.
- Coat hands with cooking spray to manage the sticky flour. Coat the surface of the banana leaves you will be placing the sweet rice flour into.
- Scoop 2 tbsp of sweet rice flour mixture and place into the banana leaves.
- Roll it like my cooking video has shown. Steam for 25 minutes.
- Cool down before unwrapping.
