Meron recipe version na traditional at meron din short cut gamit ang glutinous rice flour. If there is no banana leaves, you may use a baking paper or foil to wrap it. The use of fresh banana leaves is preferred because it gives extra aroma to the Tupig which makes it so authentic in flavor. 

Tupig Recipe


2 cups glutinous rice, soaked overnight
1 cup sugar
1 cup young coconut, shredded into strips
banana leaves, passed through flames to wilt
Cheesecloth or clean katsa


1. Using a blender, grind the soaked glutinous rice until fine. (Reduced water if needed, just leave a little water)
2. Pour the ground rice mixture into a cheesecloth. Tie the end of the cheese cloth. Squeeze out and remove excess water.
3. Transfer the ground rice on a clean dry tray and spread it out to let it dry slightly.
4. In a mixing bowl, add ground rice, sugar and young coconut. Combine well and add a little water (be careful not to put too much) to form a soft mixture.
5. Prepare the wilted banana leaves wrapper, then scoop out 3 tablespoons of the mixture. Form your mixture into a cylinder. Carefully roll and wrap it up. Flatten a little before broiling over hot charcoal.

6. Check the doneness: your tupig is done when the filling turns brownish in color and chewy in consistency.
7.  Serve hot and enjoy! Happy cooking!
