15 - 20 minutes
about 32 balls
500g packet glutinous rice flour
400ml can coconut cream
1/4 teaspoon pandan essence
120g dark palm sugar
1 cup desiccated coconut
Place rice flour in a bowl and make a well in the centre. Add coconut cream and pandan essence. Mix to form a firm dough. Knead dough lightly to evenly distribute pandan essence.
Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil over medium-high heat. Cut palm sugar into pieces the size of a 5 cent coin. Roll tablespoonfuls of dough into balls. Flatten each ball and mould around a palm sugar piece. Pinch dough to enclose sugar. Roll ball until smooth.
Place coconut in a shallow dish. Cook balls, in small batches, in boiling water for 8 minutes or until they float to the surface. Remove with a slotted spoon. Roll in coconut while warm. Transfer to a plate. Serve at room temperature (do not refrigerate).
Palm sugar balls are best eaten on the day they are made. Glutinous rice flour can be found in the Asian section of the supermarket or in Asian grocery stores.
