Palitaw Recipe


  • 1 cup Glutinous rice flour Malagkit Rice
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 1/2 kilo Brown Sugar
  • Fresh grated coconut
  • Toasted sesame seeds


  • Mix until the flour and water the two come together to form a pliable ball of dough.
  • 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.
  • Poach the Palitaw in simmering water until they begin to float (about 30 seconds to 1 minute).
  • 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.
  • Sprikle with grated coconut and the sesame seeds.
  • Serve Cold.
