Palitaw is a term used to call a sweet flat rice cake that is eaten in the Philippines as a snack or dessert. Originally, grounded or pounded sticky rice is used to make this rice cake (called kakanin in the local language) – however, the practice of using packaged rice flour became common because it is more efficient.
Ingredients
  Glutinous rice flour 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Granulated sugar 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Water 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Sesame seeds 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs), roasted
  Coconut 1 Cup (16 tbs), grated
Directions

1. Combine glutinous rice flour with water and mix until a dough is formed.
2. Scoop about 2 tablespoons of dough then mold it into a ball-shaped figure.
3. Flatten the ball-shaped dough using the palm of your hands.
4. Boil water in a cooking pot then put-in the flattened dough.
5. When the flattened dough starts to float, remove them from the pot and set it aside allowing water to drip.
6. Combine sugar and roasted sesame seeds then mix well.
7. Dunk the rice cake in grated coconut then in the sugar-sesame seed mixture.
8. Arrange in a serving plate then serve. Share and enjoy!
