• Ingredients: 4 cups malagkit na bigas (glutinous or sweet rice) 1 can (14 oz) coconut milk (only the thick part; drain water) White sugar Dahon ng saging (Banana leaves) 1/4 tsp anise (optional) Procedure: Soak "malagkit na bigas" in water overnight with water to the top of the rice. Drain water completely in the morning. Prepare the banana leaves by running on fire (oven top) till limp or wilted. Mix the well-drained "malagkit" with coconut milk and anise. Spoon desired amount of mixture into banana leaves. Sprinkle white sugar on top of the ready to roll mixture. Fold to a half or simply roll to wrap, then fold both ends and tie using small pieces of the banana leaves. Wrap and tie securely to prevent bursting during boiling. Boil 2-3 hours on medium heat. Check one on top to see if done before or after the hour. Add more water if the water in the pan is getting low. Should make 30 pieces or more Sumans of 4-5 inches long and about a quarter-size round.
