Pirurutong na Biko with Coco Jam, Suman na Pirurutong

Pirurutong na Biko with Coco Jam

Suman is traditionally cooked during the Christmas Season, there are countless versions and types from patupat of the Ilocanos to the sinukmane of Laguna. Local names are based of what type of rice, method of cooking or type of leaf wrapping used. I have to post my suman na pirurutong now before the end of the Holiday Season otherwise it would be irrelevant to post the delicacy after the New Year.

Suman na Pirurutong

I have made two variants on my suman na pirurutong. The first one is cooked biko style topped with coco jam.

The other one is a typical suman wraped with banana leaf and re-boiled/steamed further with coconut milk.

To wrap and cook the suman: Scoop out suman enough to make a small log the size of hotdog. Roll into logs and wrap with the banana leaf, fold ends to seal. Repeat the process to the rest of the suman. Arrange and secure folded ends of the wrapped suman in a pot line with the unused banana leaf stalk. Pour in the remaining coconut milk and 2 cups of water, bring to a boil. Set to low heat and simmer/steamed the suman until all the liquid has evaporated. Remove from pot and let cool down. Serve with hot chocolate drink.

Diko rin maintindihan kong bakit matigas yang violet rice na nabili mo, pareho lang dapat sa regular na white glutinuos rice.

Please sana refrain from using all caps sa pag post ng comment. Its equivalent ito to shouting...
