Palitaw Recipe is very easy to make, deliciously sticky and chewy. It is even more delicious when served with sesame seeds and freshly grated coconut.
glutinous rice flour
fresh grated coconut
light or dark mascovado sugar
toasted sesame seeds
Combine glutinous rice flour with water and mix with a spoon until a dough is formed.
Knead the dough just until smooth and softened.
Scoop about 1 heaping tablespoon of dough then shape it into a ball and make another ball until you’re done with the dough. I made 18 pieces of glutinous rice balls.
Lightly wet your hands so it wont stick on your palm then flatten the rice balls using the palm of your hands, and set aside.
Boil water in a cooking pot then put-in the flattened Palitaw dough, in batches don’t over crowd your pot to avoid sticking from each other.
When Palitaw dough starts to float, just leave it for 2 minutes more before you remove them from the pot. Use a slotted spoon so that the water will drip off.
Roll the Palitaw in fresh grated coconut then arrange it on a serving plate and sprinkle big amounts of mascovado sugaron top, sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds and serve immediately.
