    This is another variety of 'suman'. What I grew up with is the other type of suman but this is just as good, presented in a different packaging.


    • 4 cups malagkit rice (glutinous rice)
    • 1 & 1/2 tbsp salt
    • 3 cups thick coconut milk
    • Buli leaves (for wrapping the suman)


    1. Wash rice and soak with water until it swells. Mix with 2 cups coconut milk and salt.
    2. Wrap mixture in prepared buli leaves (do not fill them up completely).
    3. Place suman in large container.
    4. Fill with water and remaining 1 cup coconut milk until suman is completely immersed.
    5. Let boil until suman is cooked, normally a couple of hours.
    6. Usually served with caramelized sugar and ripe mangoes
