Dila-Dila (Mochi Dessert)

  • 2 cups mochiko (glutinous rice flour)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Dash of salt
  • 3/4 to 1 cup water
  • 2 cups freshly grated coconut
  • Sugar
  • Sesame seed


In a bowl, combine mochiko, the 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt. Slowly add enough water to make a stiff dough. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Shape dough into 1 1/2-inch balls; flatten each ball into a patty. Drop several pieces at a time into boiling water; cook until patties float. Remove and place in colander. Run under cold water to cool; drain. Coat with coconut. Repeat until all are cooked. Before serving, sprinkle with sugar and sesame seed. Makes 8 servings.
