Coconut Rice Patties Recipe

Ingredients :

    • 500 g (21/2 cups) uncooked glutinous rice, soaked in cold water for 3 hours, rinsed and drained
    • 4 tablespoons coconut cream
    • 3 tablespoons sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 2 eggs, beaten
    • Oil for deep-frying

Method :

    1. Line a bamboo steamer with a cheesecloth and spread the rice evenly on it. Steam for 20 minutes, then turn the rice over and steam for 10 more minutes until cooked.
    2. Combine the coconut cream, sugar and salt in a bowl. Stir until the sugar is completely dissolved, then add the cooked rice. Fold the rice in with the other ingredients. Set aside and let it cool.
    3. Shape the rice into small balls, each one about 21/2 cm (1 in) in diameter. Flatten each ball lightly to form a round patty.
    4. Heat the oil in a wok or deep saucepan over high heat until very hot. Dip the rice patties into the beaten egg and gently lower them into the oil, a few at a time. Deep-fry until golden brown. Remove and drain on paper towels, then serve warm.
