Poi Mochi Donuts
I love theses poi mochi donuts... they remind me of gin doi. The donuts are nice and chewy with a nice crisp outer crust. I want to make a batch using coconut milk instead of water and coconut flakes in the dough.
Mix the poi, mochiko, sugar and baking powder. Add water slowly until mixture has the consistency of a thick muffin batter that is easy to scoop with a spoon. Add purple food coloring to the mix if you prefer. Allow batter to sit for 10 minutes. Heat oil to 375 degrees. Drop tablespoons of mixture into oil and fry until outside is crispy and golden brown. Drain on paper towels and sprinkle with powdered sugar. I like to put the powdered sugar in a double brown paper bag and add the donuts a few at a time and shaking the bag. This keeps the powedered sugar mess to a minimum.
