    Matcha Palitaw

    • 1 cup mochi powder
    • 2 Tbsp Aiya Culinary Grade Matcha
    • 1 cup water

    Black Sesame Rosewater Drizzle

    • ¼ cup black sesame paste
    • 1 tsp rosewater
    • rose petals

    Matcha Black Sesame Garnish

    • 1 tsp black sesame seeds
    • 1 tsp dried shreded coconut
    • ½ tsp Aiya Culinary Grade Matcha


    Matcha Palitaw

    1. Mix the rice flour and Matcha in a bowl.
    2. Add in water slowly until it forms a dough. Note you will probably not use all the water. Add in ½ cup of water and mix in the other water slowly until the dough forms.
    3. Use an ice cream scoop to make equal rounds of dumplings.
    4. Using a spoon, dip it in water and use the back of the spoon to create a crater in the dumpling. This will help pools the black sesame sauce later on.
    5. Get water into a running boil and place the dumplings in the water one at a time. Once it floats to the top it’s done!

    Black Sesame Rosewater Drizzle

    1. In a small bowl mix the black sesame paste and rosewater until fully combined. Drizzle on the Matcha Palitaw and sprinkle rose petals and garnish on top.
