Product Used:


Rinse the rice until water runs clear then drain. In a wok or heavy pot, combine rice, coconut milk, sugar and salt. Bring to a boil. Simmer for about 30 minutes in medium heat while stirring constantly then reduce to lower heat. Remove from heat when rice becomes very sticky and almost dry. Cool before wrapping.

Prepare banana leaves. Scoop the rice mixture and place it over the prepared banana leaves. Add a strip of cheese in the middle of each. Roll banana leaves and fold the sides.

Prepare steamer and arrange the wrapped suman. Steam over medium heat for about 45 minutes.

Serve with sugar and top with grated cheese.
