Do you like pilipit and looking for ways on how to make one? Well, check this post and learn how to make pilipit.
Pilipit is a simple yet addicting Filipino dessert. The name literally translates to the English term “twisted,” thus, the appearance.
These sweet delicacies are easy to find. However, those ready-mades are usually crunchy and sometimes hard to chew. So, when my mother made a crunchy-on-the-outside and chewy-on-the-inside, I drooled and immediately chowed them down.
It’s also coincident that I just bought a jar of honey. So, it’s heaven.
Here is Pilipit Recipe:
- 2 cups ground glutinous rice
- 1/4 cup water (for dough)
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 cups white sugar
- 1 cup water (for syrup)
- oil – for frying
- Combine milk, salt, and 1/4 cup water. Mix well.
- Sift the glutinous rice and mix with the milk and water. Mix until there’s no more lump.
- Let it rest for about 5 minutes.
- Take a piece of the dough and form a long string. Then, starting from the center, fold each strip and twist. If you don’t want a super twisted pilipit, follow the picture.
- Deep fry the twisted doughs until golden brown.
- In a separate pan, add brown sugar and water and cook over a medium fire. wait until a syrup is formed. Set aside.
- In another pan. Put about 10-12 pieces of pilipit in very low fire and add the syrup. Mix well until all the doughs were coated.
- Serve and enjoy.
- This is best eaten when still hot.
- You can skip steps 6 and 7 if you just want a plain pilipit that you’ll dip in a sweet sauce.
- Make sure that you’ll make the dough a little thicker to achieve that crunchy-on-the-outside and chewy-on-the-inside consistency.
- Honey is a great dip, but you can also try maple syrup, latik, and white sugar.
