  • 1 lb Cassava grated finely
  • cup Brown sugar
  • 1 cup Coconut meat grated
  • 6 pcs Banana leaf  cut into 12 x 6 inch pieces
  • ¼ teaspoon Vanilla


  • In a large bowl, combine grated cassava, grated coconut meat, sugar and vanilla. Then mix well.
  • Then scoop about ½ cup of mixture and arrange on one side of the banana leaf. Mold the mixture so that it appears to be cylindrical in shape.
  • Roll the banana leaf to wrap the mixture. Secure the top and bottom part of the leaf by folding it inward in the same direction. Set aside.
  • In a steamer, boil 6 cups of water. Then arrange the wrapped cassava mixture and steam for 30 to 35 minutes or until the texture becomes firm.
  • Remove from the steamer and let it cool.
  • Serve. Share and enjoy!
