My own version of PALITAW (Rice Cake)

What is a PALITAW:

Palitaw is a Philippine dessert and snack made with simple rice flour dough that is boiled and then coated in coconut and sesame seeds. The small, flat rice cakes are traditionally eaten during holiday festivities but can be enjoyed at any time.

Since, I’ve been craving to eat Palitaw nowadays (hey, I’m not pregnant, gusto ko lang kumain talaga nito tapos yung maraming coconut tsaka sugar—-tsarap). So everytime, I wentΒ to JMall, I went first to the Painitan corner to buy one – 7pcs for Php 45.00 (if ako ang gagawa it could be a lot cheaper because I can make plenty of it).Β πŸ˜‚

When my cousin tagged me in her post in Instagram, she posted her own version of PALITAW also, she said that it was so easy to cook, so she shared a video on how to do it.

Now the next step to make my cravings completely satisfied, I need to find the ingredients specially the Glutinous Rice flour. Good thing JMall and Colonade has an available stocks. So now I can start making it.

The Ingredients:

1 1/4 cup of powdered Glutinous rice flour

2/3 cup of water

1/2 cup of sugar

1 tablespoon of sesame seeds

and a freshly grated coconut grains
