Coconut is one of my favorite tropical fruits. So I decided to make my family a famous Filipino dessert with rice and coconut. They were totally amazed! 🙂 This was more than enough for me to share this great recipe with you.

To prepare it you need the next ingredients:

  • 2 cups of glutinous rice flour
  • 1 cup of water
  • 4 medium size pandan leaves
  • 2 cups of grated coconut
  • Half a cup of sugar
  • quarter cup of sesame seeds or 1/8 cup of chia seeds, toasted

Delicious Filipino Dessert With Rice And Coconut

Instructions for preparation and cooking:

  1. Boil water in a pot. Add the fresh pandan leaves.
  2. In a mixing bowl put the rice flour and slowly add water until you reach the desired consistency.

NOTE: The rice dough should hold together and separate cleanly from the mixing bowl.

  1. Scoop 2 tablespoons and form a ball between your palms.
  2. Flatten the ball in order to form a patty.
  3. Poach the flattened patty into the pot with briskly boiling water.
  4. Boil the balls until they rise and float to the top which usually takes 1 to 3 minutes or longer, depending on their size.
  5. Scoop them out with a skimmer and drain them off.
  6. Roll the patties in the grated coconut. Serve them on a serving plate together with mixed sesame or Chia seeds and sugar.

I hope you will enjoy this delicious dessert as we did! 🙂
