My cousin brought home suman from her recent trip to Philippines.I put them in the freezer and only remembered them after a few days. When I cleaned the fridge I discovered the neatly tucked suman in plastic container. I didn't want them to go to waste.I took one, steamed it and ate. It was still edible.
I thawed the rest. I did what we normally do with old suman in Philippines - fry them.
I poured oil into the wok and heat it up while I prepared the batter.
For the batter: I mixed 1/2 cup of flour and 1/2 cup of milk. I rolled suman in batter to coat.
I fried them until golden brown.
I placed them on stack of paper towels to drain excess oil.
My sister and I had 4 pieces each. Normally fried suman is eaten with sugar or coconut jam. An idea struck me. Try suman with other jam. And so I did. I ate one of my share with peanut butter. The taste was acceptable. Then ate the other with blackberry jam. Strange!
I so wanted to enjoy the remaining suman I had. I looked in the cupboard and saw my tray of spices. I took nutmeg and cinnamon, mixed a dash of the first with the latter. I added a bit of sugar, sprinkled the mixture on my warm suman and Viola! It was delightful :)
