Maja Blanca and Palitaw

I love cooking, and it was my first time cooking maja blanca and palitaw this morning. I got the recipes from my mom, who is an awesome cook. Anyway, here are the steps for both.


  • 1/4 glutinous rice
  • 2 cups shredded (?) niyog
  • 1 small pack of linga
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  1. Roll the glutinous rice or malagkit in the palm of your hands and flatten as desired.
  2. Drop into boiling water and wait for it to float. Once it floats, it is an indication that it is already cooked.
  3. Transfer the cooked malagkit into a plate to drain.
  4. Roll the malagkit into the niyog.
  5. Serve with the sugar and linga mixture.

By the way, the linga has to be toasted and mixed into sugar.
