PALITAW (Boiled Rice Cake Dough)

The PALITAW (Boiled Rice Cake Dough) Recipe

Boiled Rice Cake Dough
PALITAW (Boiled Rice Cake Dough)
1 cup glutinous rice flour
1 cup regular flour
3/4 cup water
1 cup grated fresh coconut meat
1/4 cup lightly toasted sesame seeds
sugar, desired amount for topping

Combine glutinous rice flour, regular flour and water in a bowl until a smooth dough is formed. Form into small balls (1-inch diameter) then flatten balls by pressing thumb in the middle and stretching dough to make it oblong-shaped. Make thickness even (less than 1/4-inch thick).

Boil water in a deep pan. Drop each formed dough into the boiling water. When dough floats on top, remove from pan and transfer into a bowl of cold water with ice. Remove from bowl when cool enough.

Roll in grated fresh coconut meat and arrange on a platter. Just before serving, sprinkle both sides with combined mixture of sesame seeds and sugar. Serve immediately.
Yield: 20 pieces

This dessert should be consumed immediately. Otherwise, it will become soggy with liquified sugar that will be soaked into the dough if left uneaten for a long period of time.

This can also be sprinkled with an equal combination of brown and white sugar.

Notes and Tips:
Another method in forming palitaw is to roll dough flat and thin with a rolling pin. Cut into pieces with an oblong or a round cookie cutter.
