  • 1/2 kg Glutinous rice powdered
  • 1 cup Matured coconut shredded
  • 1/2 cup White sugar
  • 5 cups Water
  • 1 tbsp Sesame seeds


  • In a bowl, put the powdered glutinous rice. Slowly pour 1 cup of water onto the powdered glutinous rice.
  • If the glutinous rice mixture can be shaped into palitaw already then you don't need to add water.
  • Boil water in a pot and carefully drop each palitaw mixture into the pot.
  • If the palitaw mixture went up it means it's cooked already.
  • Roll all cooked palitaw onto shredded coconut and sprinkle it with white sugar.
  • Serve and enjoy!
