Palitaw Recipe
  • 1 cup Glutinous rice flour ( Malagkit Rice )
  • ½ cup of water
  • ½ kilo Brown Sugar
  • Fresh grated coconut
  • Toasted sesame seeds
  1. Mix until the flour and water the two come together to form a pliable ball of dough.
  2. Take a heaping tablespoon full of the dough and roll it into a ball, then flatten it into a pad shape with the palm of your hand.
  3. Poach the Palitaw in simmering water until they begin to float (about 30 seconds to 1 minute).
  4. Allow the pads to dry out and cool down a little so that they don’t turn the sugar into a syrup when you roll it around in it.
  5. Sprikle with grated coconut and the sesame seeds.
  6. Serve Cold.
