my cassava wrapped in banana leaves

My cassava kamoting kahoy I made it.
I bought Cassava a couple of days ago I miss to eat this literally we went  there in Asian store to buy a Filipino food like fish, and other Filipino Foods I wasn't do anything on that day it indeed up to go to the store because i want to cook. I Strolling around the store and found  banana leaves as well as I buy also some other mixture for Making Cassava. This is My first time to make this kind of Filipino I am glad it turns good  basically I watch my mom when she's cooking in the kitchen plus  I ask some tips how the Cassava taste good.  They called Cassava Wrapped in Banana leaves.This is a variation of  more popular Sumang Malagkit  which is steamed glutinous wrapped in  my banana leaves.
 Aside from the very simple process of making Cassava Wrapped this Filipino native sweet delicacy is so popular to Filipinos because of the abundance of kamoteng kahoy in the Philippines. Also known as cassava or  kamoteng kahoy is the third largest source of carbohydrates for meals. My kid does not want to eat because he don't know what it is Somehow he said mom I bit you eat Filipino Food than american Food yes. And i know how I miss it specially my friend posted through their twitter or facebook. As far as I knew I can do what I want to eat I guess i am learning alot now than used to be. Just check out my Cassava Kamoting kahoy.
Here in the US, you can buy it fresh or frozen. Though I prefer to buy it fresh whenever I find some at the Asian store, I always have the frozen one in the freezer for emergency use. It's my first time to make suman, so I decided to just use my remaining 1 pack of frozen cassava just so I could see the outcome.

 I am so glad to find these suman waiting for me, When I went to my friend.She live closer to asian market which is good I ask want to go to the store because I am going to cook Cassava and right away we went I  thankful  such a  good  friend.  I wish I had more cassava so I could have made more. Next
time I am going to cook Sticky Rice.


  1. yummy indeed! the best comfort food. I just got back from the Philippines and believe it or not i've only eaten this kind of food ones over there. hehehhe

  2. Sarap naman ng suman, gusto ko tuloy kumain dito

  3. yes indeed I love suman talaga I cook because i miss filipino food. miss the pinoy food :)

  4. I prefer the cassava boiled with caramel syrup but your cassava wrapped in banana leaves is mouthwatering! I can't remember the last time I had suman.

  5. Wow, that looks yummy. I only tried to make cassava once but I learned it needs a lot of patience, which I don't have. Nakakangalay sa kilikili maghalo. :)

  6. Yummy! Well, I'm not really fond of cassava, i would rather have the sticky rice :) these looks good though.

  7. I wish I could have some right now hehehe. I miss suman very much. I would like to make suman here but there's no banana leaves.
