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