Flat Rice Dumplings with Coconut (Palitao)

These are about as simple as dumplings get. The dough is just (freshly ground) rice flour and water, shaped into little patties, boiled, and then sprinkled with coconut and cinnamon sugar.  Okay, the recipe called for anise sugar, but no matter how hard I try I can't abide the flavor of anise.  These are also frequently made with sesame seeds on top, but I really wanted to try cinnamon as a substitute for anise.

These are so easy to eat, especially while warm.  Apparently they're best made with freshly grated coconut... I can only imagine.
