Palitaw (Filipino Dessert)

My first home made Palitaw. Hehehe, kong kailan ako tumanda saka pa ako nagtiyagang magluto ng native sweets. Nakakasawa na kasi ang cake kaya balik native ako ngayon. Hindi ako natututong magluto nito noon dahil wala akong interest at tiyaga at isa pa namihasa din dahil may tigagawa. Matagal ko ng inaasam-asam na makakain ulit ng Palitaw pero malayo na ako sa kaibigan kong mabait at masipag. Kaya heto ako’t nagsariling sikap :).

Sa tutuo lang medyo nahirapan ako sa dough dahil dumidikit ito sa kamay ko everytime I tried to flatten it. Yon pala medyo sumobra lang ang tubig kaya ito basa. Basically, it is very easy to do pero siguro ganun lang talaga kapag first timer pa. It’s like as if you are experimenting. Tiyaga lang talaga ang kailangan. Here’s the result of what I made.

 

 

The recipe:

Ingredients:

500 gram glutinous rice flour

3/4 cup water

coconut flakes

white sugar

sesame seeds (toasted)

Mix rice flour with water to make dough. Make little balls then flatten. Boil water in a saucepan. Drop flattened dough balls into boiling water. The cakes are cooked when they float. Remove from water, let cool a little bit, roll in combined sugar and toasted sesame seeds and coconut flakes.

    wow! galing mo naman mader dear! nag-try ako nito once, sa buong buhay ko dito sa france, isang beses lang akong sumubok gumawa nyan. na-palpak pa! ^-^ i bought all the necessary ingredients, over excited pa ko at the time, sabi ko kay hubby, “you’ll see, super sarap ‘to! hehe”. ang kaso, ewan ko ba kung bakit ang kinalabasan e parang gulong sa kunat ang mga lintik! nyehehehe… so ayun, basurahan ang kumain. hinayang na hinayang ako kala mo ba… sa paris ko pa man din binili ang mga ingredients since wala kaming chinese store dito. mula noon, hindi na ko nag-try ulit.

    ang hindi ko maintindihan, sinunod ko naman ang cooking procedure. tsk. tsk.

    labsya!

  5. Thank you ate Beng and ate Sha is also giving me tips on this as well. By the way, I tried the meatloaf recipe today for dinner and I am soo happy that it turned out fine and tasty as well. I forgot to buy parsely so I just put in some rosemary.

  6. Thanks for the tip ate beng and also I got one from ate sha as well. Btw, I also tried the baked meatloaf and it was soooo good. I forgot to but parsely and I just used rosemary instead. Anyways, thanks so much for the recipe.

  7. Charles, moderation was on on kasi…tapos hindi ko kaagad ito na check kaya na delayed. Sorry dear :)

    So you’ve successfully tried to baked the meatloaf recipe. Impress ako sa iyo dahil ang hilig at ang sipag mong magluto. I still have more recipes coming…time lang ang wala :)

    Ok, got to stop now dahil nandito ako ngayon sa sister ko and she’s standing me…looks inip na sa kakaantay sa akin. Have a nice weekend my dear.

  8. Ate I also tried the palitaw today and it was good on my first attempt nothing went wrong. The rice flour dough just floats when its cook . It was so simple actually I dunno why my aunts before can’t do it right as well.. hehehehehehe

  9. Wow Charles, ang galing mo :) To tell you honestly..medyo nahirapan ako when I first prepared it. Bilib ako sa yo. O ano have you registered yurself na doon sa ating We Pinoys?

    Btw, more recipes are coming…tapos na ako sa project so, may time na akong mag update dito.
