Food Friday

21 shared thoughts
One of my fave kakanins/snacks!

Palitaw, a sweet snack made up of ground sticky rice...which is then mixed with water to obtain a sticky dough-like consistency and shaped into flattened balls. The balls are then dropped in boiling water. Once cooked, it floats to the surface and is then dipped in freshly grated coconut, sugar (in this case brown sugar was used), and toasted sesame seeds.

Hubby's family cooks a similar version, which they call Palutang. They cook it during New Year's Day. :)

Food Friday Players:

ps. should have done this EONS ago: adding a backlink to those who played as my way of saying thanks for linking back. :)

*I don't think my other blog will be 'operational' real soon...and I don't think I have the time to make another blog, so Food Friday is here to stay. For now. I think. Many many thanks to those who have kept on playing! :)

...i still have to go to Via Mare along T. Morato...been ages since I wanted to eat there! the kids aren't so much into kakanins, kaya they don't want to go there. LOL

Palitaw is also one of my favorites, it seems too simple to look at pero masarap. I remember we make this at home while I was growing up, now minsan na lang ako makatikim. I miss this. :|
