Tupig is a popular Filipino recipe/delicacy that is composed of glutinous rice “Malagkit”, coconut mik and shredded young coconut meat wrapped in fresh banana leaves and gill in hot charcoal. It is an all-time favourite present “Pasalubong” among tourists and travellers.
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.
Serve while it hot,
Share and Enjoy!!!
