Palitaw is a Filipino snack that consist of glutinous rice coated with grated coconut, sugar and roasted sesame seeds. This flattened sweet rice cake is very chewy and really filling.
In a bowl, combine glutinous rice flour and water and mix into a soft pliable dough. If too soft and sticky add some more glutinous rice flour. If a piece of dough is cracking when flattened, then add a bit of water.
Form small balls. Then flatten the balls to a quarter-inch thickness by pressing them in between your palms.
In a pot over medium-high heat, bring about half deep of water into a rolling boil.
Gently drop each flattened dough into the boiling water. When the pieces float to the surface, remove from water and drain well.
When cool enough to handle, roll in a plate of mixed sugar, coconut and sesame seeds.
