Every province in the Philippines has different versions of how to cook it, what to wrap it with and the ingredients that they add to it.

The basic ingredients are glutinous rice and coconut milk which is half cooked then rolled and wrapped in banana leaves before steamed until its cooked. Before steaming, this is when the innovations or extra ingredients are inserted.
