Tupig filipino recipe is one of the best native Filipino delicacies for merienda or giveaways to relatives and friends. There are different Filipino versions depending where it is being made. But for now, this is my version of Tupig Filipino Recipe. Have fun and Enjoy!
2 cups glutinous rice
1 pc. big banana leaf
1 cup young coconut strips
1 – 1 ½ cup coconut milk
½ cup brown sugar
Add glutinous rice in a bowl and pour enough water to soak the rice and leave it in a room temperature overnight.
Then after that, drain the water from the rice then place in a cheese cloth to remove excess liquid.
Place in a food processor or blender and process until it becomes powder then add the coconut milk and sugar and continue to blend until even in consistency.
Place mixture in a bowl and add the coconut strips.
Place 2 tbsp. of mixture in the centre of the banana leaf then wrap by rolling and fold the edges to avoid dripping. This would be very tricky as the dough is runny, it takes practice.
Immediately place and grill in charcoal once you wrap one.
Cook by turning frequently.
Once the banana leaf is charred on both sides, remove it from the grill then set aside to cool down a little before serving.

Suman malagkit (Sticky Rice Roll in Banana Leaves) is one of the famous snacks (merienda) in our Country. It’s inexpensive and very easy to make. Most of the flavor comes from the banana leaf wrapping thus, no artificial flavoring is needed.
I live in the small tropical province of Bohol Philippines. It’s abundant with banana trees, they grow everywhere. I grew up watching my family make different varieties of banana leaf wrapped suman. We make “lidgid”, made with grated cassava or Kamote (sweet potatoes), suman sa lihiya and suman moron. Today I will share with to you suman malagkit, sticky rice wrapped in banana leaves.
This snack is served wrapped in the leaves. When you’re ready to eat it you simply unwrap the filling and dip it in brown sugar and sweetened grated coconut. It’s a great snack for picnics and hikes!
On special occasions especially New Year’s Eve, Christmas and Fiestas these delicacies were always present and one of the favourite snack to serve.

For now I will give you a simple version of Maja Blanca.
Butter an 8-inch baking dish or pie pan, and set aside. Mix 1/2 cup of water with the cornstarch in a bowl, and stir until smooth.
Combine the coconut milk, 3/4 cup of water, and sugar in a saucepan over low heat, and stir until the sugar is dissolved.
Bring the mixture to a boil, add the corn kernels, and then stir in the cornstarch mixture, stirring quickly to avoid lumps as it becomes very thick.
Bring the mixture back to a boil, and simmer until fully thickened and smooth, stirring constantly, about 2 minutes.
Pour the maja blanca into the prepared dish, and set aside to cool until firm, about 1-2 hours.
