We call this ‘bukayo’ in the Philippines.
Coconut meat is grated, mixed with brown sugar and cooked until brown in medium heat… (hmm, I miss the smell of this delicacy 😉 ) When the mixture is cooled, a dough of glutenous rice powder is prepared; cooked by dipping in boiling water in a few minutes. (You will know the dough is cooked because when you drop it in boiling water it sinks, when it is cooked it floats – ‘litaw’.) Cool the dough and place the cooked grated coconut meat in the center. Make into small balls and sprinkle with finely grated raw coconut meats and white sugar.
