Suman cassava is a native Filipino delicacy that is made from grated cassava mixed with coconut cream and brown sugar. We call it Suman because it is rolled and wrapped in banana leaves. Easy and very simple to make. And to make it special, I added sweetened macapuno strings (coconut sport).
To wrap, wash the banana leaves and pat dry. To make it pliable, pass the leaf lightly over the stove top with low flame. Then, spoon some mixture over the prepared banana leaf, fold or roll to enclose then fold each end.
There's really no need to tie and secure it. Just lay them flat on its folds when arranging on a steamer pan.
After 45 minutes, your cassava is ready. It can be served warm or cold.
