    Ube-Coconut Rice Balls

    makes about 20

    Ingredients:

    small purple sweet potato (about 6 ounces)
    1 1/2 cups glutinous rice flour
    1/2 cup lukewarm water (or more as needed)
    1 cup dessicated coconut
    sugar to taste

    Instructions:

    1. Roast ube in preheated 425F degree oven for 30-35 minutes or until soft to touch. Let cool, scoop out of the skin and mash with fork.

    2. In a medium saucepan, fill halfway with water and put to boil over high heat.

    3. Meanwhile In a medium bowl, place rice flour. Stir in water and mix thoroughly. Add water a tablespoon at a time until dough comes together. Dough should be firm but pliable.

    4. Pull one teaspoonful of dough, flatten into 3-inch circle and place about half a teaspoon of ube in center. Gather the edges onto itself to seal. Rub between the palms of your hands to make a ball.

    5. Once water boil, lower heat to simmer and drop in rice balls a few at a time. Once it floats, ladle out and roll in coconut. Serve warm or room temperature with sugar for dipping.
