Suam na mais is a rich corn flavored soup from Pampanga, the original recipe uses "dahon ng sili" since it's not available in my place I used okra and talbos ng camote, it is still very yummy. It is important that we use the malagkit type of corn to attain that thick creamy texture in the soup.
Ingredients for 5 servings:
4 pieces young white malagkit corn
1/4 kilo shrimps ( cleaned and de-shelled)
3 cups water (add if needed)
5 pieces okra ( cut into halves)
2 cups camote tops ( talbos ng camote)
3 cloves garlic
salt and pepper to taste
1. Saute the garlic and onion then add the shrimps and saute until the shrimps turned pinkish, then add the corn and simmer for a minute.
2. Add the water, salt and pepper, simmer until the corn is tender.
3. Add the okra and simmer until half cooked then add the camote tops and simmer until done and turn off the heat.
4. Serve it hot.
