DIRECTIONS

  • Squeeze grated coconut in water then strain coconut water in clean dish towel or cheesecloth over another bowl.
  • Squeeze until all liquid has been extracted (Instead of fresh coconut, you may use 1/2 can of grated coconut and 1 1/2 cups of water).
  • Place canned coconut in 1 package of mochi flour and add water until dough is soft but not too sticky.
  • Do the same with fresh coconut.
  • Shape dough in balls of 1 inch diameter and fry in deep fat until golden brown.
  • Drain dough balls on paper towel.
  • Then put them in a large mixing bowl.
  • When all have been fried, boil water and 1/3 box brown sugar in a small sauce pan until it reaches the soft boil stage.
  • This is done by placing a drop of syrup in a bowl of cold water.
  • If it retains it shape and is soft, it is ready.
  • Pour over dough balls.
  • Mix well so that all are coated with syrup.
  • Remove from bowl and place them in a platter to cool.
  • Excellent with coffee or tea.
