Ingredients 400 grams grated cassava - no need to squeeze out liquids 200 grams sugar 450 ml water 2 teaspoons baking soda solution FOR COATING AND TOPPING 80 grams coconut - grated grated cheese - optional
Instructions In a deep bowl, combine all ingredients together and mix thoroughly. Fill individual cup molds about three-quarter full or a bit more but leave some space because it can rise a bit while steaming. Arrange the filled molds in a steamer and steam for about 40-60 minutes or until they become translucent. Let them cool down completely so it is easier to remove from the molds, or place them in the fridge to shorten the cooling time. Roll each Pichi Pichi in grated coconut or grated cheese.
Recipe Notes You may also add some flavoring by adding drops of buko-pandan or ube extract. If you opt to have it all natural, boil some pandan leaves in water and substitute that with the water in the recipe.
To make the baking soda solution: 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda dissolved in 1 cup of water then boil the mixture for 5 minutes
