I’ve been reading friends status on how delicious mochi balls are. Which started my craving for some but couldn’t find any here. Take a look how Food Librarian made some mochi balls here. Yumyum!
I think mochi balls are quite similar to a favorite Kakanin called Palitaw only shaped like a ball with some filling. I had some glutinous rice flour and ube haleya and decided to make some for our merienda (snack). WhenAdoboMetFeijoada made some using Sweet Purple Potato here.
Palitaw: Ube Coconut Rice Balls
2 cups glutinous rice flour
1 cup lukewarm water
1 cup coconut flakes
Before preparing rice balls, boil some water on a medium saucepan.
Stir half cup of water on your glutinous rice flour adding a little bit more of water from the remaining half cup till dough comes together. Firm but pliable.
Flatten a tablespoon of dough into a circle then fill with ube haleya. Gather sides and pinch to seal. Slowly roll between your palms to make a ball.
Drop a few ball in our boiling water. After a minute or two rice balls will float ladle out and roll on coconut flakes and sugar. Top with sesame seeds.
1 kilo Ube -steam and mashed (purple yam/garadu/sweet purple potato)
1/2 cup condense milk
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1 can coconut milk
1 stick butter
Melt butter and add the rest of the ingredients and mix till you get the right jam consistency. It took me about an hour over medium heat.
great job! Thanks for linking my post, I've made these again using ube halaya and they turned out so much better.

Thanks Caroline! Signed-Up already. Hopefully my request gets approved.
I thought mochi balls also reminded me of palitaw. My mom used to make lomichi very similar to palitaw only she uses dessicated coconut. Recently I made pandan balls too very similar too your recipe however instead of ube I used yema for the filling. I think ube though would be a great filling… something to look forward to make. Yep as Carol said, join as sa KCC. we have challenges every month and it's a fun way to meet other Pinoy bloggers too!Great to meet you!Malou
