Tasty Suman Malagkit

Suman (pronounced soo-man) also called Budbud (pronounce bood-bood) is one of my favorite h Filipino snack/desserts!

You will need these ingredients.

Rinse the rice until water is clear and then set aside.

In a large saucepan or large wok, add the coconut milk, ginger is and bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce to a simmer.  Stir continuously until milk solids separate from the coconut milk.

Add the rice and continue mixing on low heat until the water has been absorbed, about 10 minutes.

Remove from heat and allow to slightly cool.

Measure out about 80 grams of the rice mixture and place on the banana leaf, and roll into logs.

In a large pot, arrange all the folded suman and add 1.5 liters of water. Bring it to a boil and reduce to simmer for 45 minutes.

Carefully remove the suman  and allow it cool.
