Eat It! After half an hour, remove suman from steamer and let allow them to cool down enough so you can hold them. Remove ties and separate the pairs into individual pieces. There are two ways to eat this:
1) Unfold one of the ends, then peel the leaf down as you wold peel a banana. Eat plain,or dip in sugar and / or freshly grated coconut.
2) Completely unwrap the suman so that it is sitting on the leaf. Eat plain or add any toppings you want. (Use a spoon or fork!)
Common toppings used for suman are fresh grated mature coconut, sugar, latik, coconut syrup, palm sugar syrup etc.
Any kind of simple syrup can be used, although I'm not quite sure if maple syrup would work. Suman also goes very well with mangoes and bananas. If any of you make this, let me know how it turns out!
