Bleep bloop bla bla blip.
I'm sick but still trying to do things. I can hardly think but I managed somehow to do dishes, cook, and paint today. My body wants to sleep but I want to push on so I can read a few more chapters of Game of Thrones. I'm functioning through sheer will power, which is kind of nice, knowing that I can wield that kind of power. I hope I can keep this up when I'm back to feeling 100%, who knows what I'll be able to accomplish then.
These treats would have been made infinitely moa betta if someone else had made them for me. Still they're pretty damn delicious. Siah kept burning his fingers on them because he couldn't wait for them to cool, so they have hubby's approval. I've adapted the recipe from T’s So Easy Poi Mochi Balls after seeing Grandma post it over Facebook.
I'm not a huge fan of frying things but I'm not a huge fan of being sick either so today all bets are off. This seemed like something doable (as it's name implied) and it was. The only changes I made to the original was that I used less water and added more coconut milk. And that's it.
- 1 lb bag poi, any brand is okay
- 1 can coconut milk + enough water to bring it to 2 cups (about 2.5 oz)
- 1 ¼ cup white sugar
- 1 box mochiko flour
- Oil for frying
- Powdered sugar for garnish (optional)
- Mix together all ingredients in a large bowl until it's smooth
- Heat oil in a saucepan or use a deep fryer. Oil's ready when a toothpick starts to bubble when you put the tip in the oil
- Drop dollops of the mixture the size of a tablespoon into the hot oil. Make sure they don't stick to the bottom. When they float to the top, flip them and let them cook on the other side for another minute.
- The mochi are ready when they are golden brown
- Remove the mochi to a plate lined with napkins or a wire rack to cool and remove excess oil. Lightly sprinkle with powdered sugar after it's cooled

And that's all the energy I have for this post. Peace!
