Recipe by Taga_luto
This is a Filipino snack. We love this!! Got this from a Philippine Cookbook but did some modifications because of the measurements and the availability of the ingredients, I have to substitute some of them.
- 1 1⁄2 cups sticky rice (Mochiko rice, reserve the 1/2 cup)
- 1 cup unsweetened flaked coconut
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 cups canola oil
- 1⁄2 cup water
Directions See How It's Made
- To make the dough: Mix in mochiko rice and coconut flakes.
- Add water little by little until you can form the dough into small balls.
- Dust the board with rice flour to prevent the dough from sticking.
- Pull each ball to form an 8 inch cylinder dough.
- Twist the dough into a number 8. Or like a pretzel.
- To make the caramel syrup:In the mean time while the dough is frying, melt the brown sugar in 1 cup of oil.
- Lower heat until it reaches the caramel syrup stage.
- Dip each dough twist to coat with the syrup.
- Serve hot and enjoy.
