Rice cakes.

We call this SUMAN (glutinous rice usually cooked in coconut milk and sugar then wrapped in coconut leaves) in the vernacular. I bought this from a recent trip to Antipolo ( a town near Manila ).

A filler for my 04/14.
That sounds delicious and I love the textures, thanks for sharing

I LOVE SUMAN!! The wrapping on these is really beautiful - I haven't seen it done like that. I love seeing your pictures of our home country that I haven't seen in 22 years!

Sweet so obviously a dessert? The coconut leaves look very thick. I take it they are not edible?

@maggiemae you eat it without the wrapping, some would dip it in sugar. i prefer eating it as it is.
