Suman (sticky rice)

Suman is another native delicacy of Filipinos.  I have seen frozen suman in some asian stores but I did not want to buy it instead I want to make it on my own.  Good thing is that I have found a recipe that is perfect for my taste :)here is the link BUSOG! SARAP!

Suman

Ingredients:

4 cups glutinous (sticky) rice

1 large can of coconut cream (560ml)

1/4 cup white sugar

a good pinch of salt

1 big packet of frozen banana leaves

Place the sticky rice on a large bowl and immerse it in water. Soak it for about 1 hour. Drain sticky rice and combine with  coconut cream and salt. Cook it in rice cooker. Keep stirring till there’s no more visible liquid. Stir in the sugar till well combined. The mixture should be like a wet steamed rice (half cooked) appearance, with a bit of coconut cream coating the sticky rice.  Turn off the rice cooker and take out the rice cooker bowl and set aside to cool.

Prepare your banana leaves: if you’re using frozen ones, defrost it first.  Using a clean wet kitchen towel/paper towel, wipe the leaves.  Sanitize the leaves over an open flame or stovetop.

Wrap your cooked rice in banana leaves and steamed it for 40 minutes.
