Yet another Filipino dessert and snack delicacy. This was shared to me by a good friend's mom. I remember the first time I had these, it was like popping small little bite sized morsels of baked mochi in my mouth. If I remember correctly, we ate half of the batch before we sat down for dinner.
10 oz. mochiko (Japanese sweet rice flour)
1/4 c. raw sugar
2 c. shredded coconut
1 c. frozen coconut milk
oil for frying
In a mixing bowl, combine mochiko and sugar. Stir in coconut and coconut milk; blending well. Deep fry by teaspoonful in hot oil until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
