Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup strawberry jam
  • 1 tablespoon desiccated coconut
  • 1/2 cup glutinous (sticky) rice flour (sticky) rice flour

Instructions

  • First prepare the syrup. Place the jam in a bowl. Stir in hot water, a teaspoonful at a time, just until the mixture is pourable. Pour into the blender and pulse a few times to break up large pieces of strawberry. Chill.
  • Dry fry the desiccated coconut in a pan until golden brown. Set aside.
  • Place the glutinous rice flour in a bowl. Stir in water (at room temperature), a tablespoonful at a time, just until the mixture comes together. The dough should be soft but not sticky.
  • In a small sauce pan, bring about two cups of water to the boil.
  • Have a bowl of iced water ready.
  • Form the rice dough into small balls and drop them into the briskly boiling water. As soon as each ball floats to the surface, scoop it out and dump into the the bowl of iced water.
  • Drain the cooked rice balls and transfer to a plate. Pour the strawberry syrup around them and sprinkle with the toasted desiccated coconut.
