Tupig Recipe

Intemtem or Tupig  is a native delicacy from a town in Pangasinan. Tupig is a mixture of glutinous rice (malagkit) soaked over night, finely grind and grated coconuts wrapped in wilted banana leaves and cooked over artificial grill made of roof top like  metal on a lit charcoals.

There was even a competition held among several provinces to make it to the Guinness Book of World Records for preparing the longest “tupig” (a variety of rice cake). For the people of the northern provinces of Luzon island, cooking and selling “tupig” is rooted in their way of life, is a source of livelihood, and a regular fare during festivals and the Christmas celebrations.
