Directions

  1. Mix the rice flour, 1/2 cup sugar, and the water together in a bowl into a soft dough; set aside.
  2. Stir 1/2 cup sugar and sesame seeds together in a small bowl. Toss the coconut with the salt together in a separate bowl.
  3. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  4. Take a portion of the soft dough and roll it into a ball between the palms of your hands. Pull lengthwise and shape into a tongue. Drop into the boiling water. The cake is ready when it floats. Scoop it out with a strainer and roll it in the sugar and sesame seed mixture. Place it on a serving platter. Repeat with the rest of the dough. Top the cakes with coconut and serve warm.

These are delicious, but to make them even better, try adding a can of coconut milk or cream to the water that you boil them in. This will give the cakes a strong coconut flavor

I liked how simple and inexpensive it was to make these. Just like the ones I buy from my local Asian grocery store. I did have to add more flour for a thicker consistency and I did not ball them in my hand. I used a melon baller, scooped them into boiling water then stretched them after they were cooked, as I did a coating of coconut. I would also modify and use 1/4 tsp salt rather than 1 tsp. It was too salty for my taste. After modifying the recipe they were great though! Reminds me of the treats mama would buy for me in the fish market when I was growing up :)

I like the taste but using the recipe provided, I ended up with a really gooey palitao so I ended up having to add more rice flour until it was hard enough to form balls with. I love the taste though. It's exactly how I remembered it. Thanks for the recipe!
