Tupig is a popular delicacy originated from Ilocos. Made from glutinous rice flour, coconut strips wrapped in banana leaved and grilled over charcoal. Pretty easy to make compare to other Filipino delicacies.

  • 1 lb. glutinous rice flour (malagkit)
  • 2 cups young shredded coconut
  • 2 cups coconut milk
  • 1 cup brown sugar (or more if you want it sweeter)
  • 2 tablespoon roasted sesame seed
  • margarine
  • banana leaves, cut and wilted
  • aluminum foil

Cooking Instruction:
  1. Using a big bowl mix rice flour, sugar, young coconut, sesame seed and coconut milk.
  2. Blend well until even consistency. Set aside.
  3. Brush some margarine or butter on the banana leaves.
  4. Place 2 tablespoon of mixture in the center of the banana leaves then wrap by rolling.
  5. Cook on a grill covered with aluminum foil.
  6. Turn frequently and cook for about 15 to 20 minutes or until done.
  7. *You can open one wrapper to see if Tupig is fully cooked when the inside turns golden brown. Careful it's hot*
