KCC: Suman sa Lihia

This month’s Kulinarya theme is Suman.  Suman is one of Filipino native delicacies; it’s made of sticky rice (also cassava) wrapped in banana or coconut leaves and boiled.  There are  different kinds of suman; the ones I’m familiar with are suman sa lihia, suman sa ibos ( glutinous rice wrapped in young coconut leaves) and suman sa latik – my favorite of all […]
