Servings: 15 Servings
- 2 packages (16 ounces each) frozen grated cassava, thawed and drained or 4 cups freshly grated
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup coconut milk
With a damp cloth, gently wipe surfaces of banana leaves to remove any dirt or grit. Over high flames, quickly pass leaves for about 3 to 5 seconds to wilt.
In a bowl, combine cassava, sugar, and coconut milk.
Spoon about 2 heaping tablespoons of mixture onto a banana leaf and shape into a log. Fold banana leaf over mixture to enclose and roll tightly into a log. Fold both ends and tie with kitchen twine.
Arrange prepared suman in a steamer and steam for about 35 to 45 minutes or until firm. Remove from steamer and allow to slightly cool.
