kase ako personally sarap na sarap dito, many times ko na itong niluluto kase addictive..
Sounds not common ? do you know in Japan it is common usually you can see them in many store
especially in Valentines Day..i love this sweet food but it's not Palitaw . it is MOCHI CHOCO ..
honestly i'm not a Mochi lover or but because of this, i crave a lot on Valentines day only..
and know what, it has chocolate stuffed too ,that's why it's very special and yummy..
I decided to make it in our Filipino Kakanin version ,which is bilo bilo or Palitaw
Now you can imagine , that it is very easy to cook .right?
136 grams of GLUTINOUS RICE FLOUR
6 tbsp coconut Milk
1 tbsp warm water
4 tbsp COCOA POWDER/ you can use sweetened cocoa
and any Chocolate Candies for stuffing /i used TRUFFLES
Let's Start cooking
1..First is you need a mixing bowl..Combine glutinous rice flour and Cocoa..stir until well combined..
2..Pour 6 tbsp coconut milk and 1 tbsp warm water..mix until thickens and form like a dough
adjust liquid if needed..not too sticky but not too dry..then massage it with your clean hands .
3..Get ready for your filling,cut into small size,big filling might run out while we boil the palitaw and of course , get ready your boiling water
4..then we 're going to make a palitaw ball..with a clean hands..grab one tbs scoop of the dough
make a round shaped using your palm and flattened to fill the chocolate .and seal it to cover the filling and slowly roll it it again in your palm to form a ball ..and continue the method..
And carefully press the palitaw balls a bit , we don't want our palitaw to be like like bilo bilo..
5..Now if boiling water is ready, drop carefully the Palitaw Choco one by one
once you see them floats ,it's a sign that their are cooked ..
remove it and place in a dish with grated coconut..
6..and now merienda is done, eat warm or cool completely ..
serve with muscovado sugar or anything you like to sprinkle ..
because of the chocolate filling , i think you don't need anything ..just a cup of warm tea is enough..
ENJOY, hope you try it at home and serve with your friends and visitors..
