How To Make Palitaw

I was in the Philippines two months ago.  Unfortunately, I did not eat the Filipino food that I've been craving for seven years.  Anyways, though I did get a chance to enjoy my favorite foods, I was lucky enough that I know how to prepare them myself.  It was fun to eat with family or friends... in the streets... chatting while eating... Oh, I always miss the simplicity of life in the Philippines.

This afternoon, I made one of my favorite merienda or snack called palitaw - Tikya Version.  It is made of glutinous rice (sweet rice).  I need to go to the Asian stores to get my powdered sweet rice.  I will add water to make my sweet rice sticky and thick.  Here is my finished product.  I partnered it with a hot cup of coffee. It is very satisfying. Burp...


It is easy to make.  I am gonna share the The-How-To-Make-Palitaw.

Ingredients:

A bag of powdered sweet rice
3 and 1/2 cup water
 Freshly grated coconut
Sesame seeds
White sugar

Put 2 cups of water in a medium sized pan and let it boil.  While waiting for the water to boil, add the remaining cups of water to the powdered sweet rice, mix until it is thick and sticky (you can add a little more water if it is not sticky enough).  Make a ball of the sticky rice and flatten it before placing the mixture to boiling water.  You can submerge 3 pieces of sticky rice mixture at a time.  It is done once the sticky rice floats. Remove and individually place it on a plate to cool.

Put sesame seeds in a heated pan.  Keep stirring until sesame seeds are roasted. Don't burn it. Let it cool for a minute until you are ready to pound it.  I put the roasted sesame seeds in a small ziploc bag then pound it. I am a messy worker, ahaha... ziploc prevented me from making a mess.

I mixed the roasted sesame seeds with sugar and shake the ziploc bag.  Sprinkle grated coconut to each palitaw then top it with the sesame seeds mix.  You can partner it with coffee, hot coco or just plain water.

It is simple and so easy to make.  Hope this makes you smile. Enjoy! =)

A Coffee And A Cat

Good morning.  Had a good sleep last night.  I always wake up early in the morning when I have to go to work. Prepping is not easy for me. I am a turtle.  Had my breakfast and now sitting by the window finishing up my coffee while a beautiful kitty named Dusty decided to join me. How sweet was that?  Well, that is her spot...

Dusty is a long - haired domestic cat. I love her. Very vocal and affectionate.  Got her at Mason Animal Shelter when she was around 6mos. old. Since then we became inseparable. 
OK. That's it for now. Gotta get ready. Till next.
