How to Cook Palitaw

How to Cook Palitaw

August 19, 2019 100 By William Morgan


Welcome to Panlasang Pinoy!
I’m Vanjo Merano
and today we’ll be cooking a very simple “kakanin” (rice cake)
this is the type of recipe which you’ll be amazed to know how easily it’s made
this is what you call easy “Palitaw” (it’s so easy!)
and these are the ingredients for our easy “palitaw” recipe
glutinous rice flour
water
shredded coconut or “kinayod na niog”
sugar
we’ll also be needing toasted sesame seeds
come and let’s start cooking
we’ll start off with the dough
we’ll do this by mixing the glutinous rice flour with water
make sure to mix these two ingredients well
just so we’re clear, glutinous rice flour are powdered sticky rice
glutinous means sticky, so that’s why it’s called glutinous rice flour
there are some that are rice flour alone, which is not sticky
we don’t need that, what we need is the sticky one, the glutinous rice flour
rice flour alone will yield different results
results would be better if you’ll be mixing this by hands
mold like clay
do this until it is well blended
once done, mold using a scoop for identical size
roll unto a ball
Did you know that this is the same exact way of making “bilo-bilo”?
rolling it unto a ball is for “bilo-bilo”, for “palitaw, we have to make it flat
I also prepared wax paper in here
to avoid clutter due to stickiness
repeat the same step
and now we are ready
in a boiling water, place our molded dough for our “palitaw”
the good thing about this is that this cooks quickly,
you’ll know that it’s done once it floats
for now, let us mix our sugar with toasted sesame seeds
I placed the sugar in a bigger bowl then added the toasted sesame seeds
Mix well
Onced mixed, this is now ready
let us now go back to our “palitaw”
as you may notice they started floating
wait until they float above water to make sure they are well cooked
as you may also notice, I’m using the so-called slotted spoon
so that when we remove the “palitaw”, it will be drained instantly because of the spaces at the middle
remove all “palitaw” and put on a plate
we are now ready, we may now assemble this
put in the shredded coconut or “kinayod na niog”, flip to to cover “palitaw”
then dredge to to our sugar and sesame seed mixture
you can bought it off the market toasted so that you won’t need to toast it yourself
there, and then put on a serving plate
I added banana leaf on my serving plate for presentation
continue doing the same procedure in all “palitaw” that we’d cooked then serve
this is now our easy “Palitaw”
before eating this, let me tell you a story
you know what, regardless if this is simple, I do compare this to life, to myself.
sometimes, we fall with all the hardships in life
but with the help of our friends, family and God, we’ll get up
and of course your will and determination to get up, stand up and somehow help others
that simple, yet I managed to tell a story on a serious note
going back, let me eat this first
Mmm~
Mmm~
this is just right
the good thing about this,
sorry, I’ll finish this first
It’s so chewy that I have to finish it first to avoid getting choked
This is a budget friendly recipe. Also, this could quickly make you feel full
I hope you have learn something new today. Most specially for those who’s just learning how to cook, I recommend you this recipe
