Kiping Recipe

Philipine kiping leaves

Our Asia-hopping traveler, Sandra Scott, and her husband, John, discovered kiping, colorful rice-powder-covered leaves that are used to decorate houses — and everything else — during holy days.  If you bake the kiping, it’s edible and quite tasty.

Rice powder


Pinch of salt

Food colorings

Kabal leaves, any waxy leaf or other item that will leave an imprint


To the rice powder add water until it is of a flowing consistency. Add food coloring. Pour the batter over the leaf, put into steamer for about one minute, air dry, when dry peel off. To make the kiping eatable bake and serve with dips.
