This sweet rice dessert is more commonly known as Kapampangan Kapit or Kulambo in Pangasinan, or simply Kalamay in most other regions.
The sweet rice flour is mixed with coconut milk and sugar and stirred to come together.
What you get is like a blob of sticky paste(not quite an appetizing description, I know) and this is the stage where you add the coconut oil from the latik to keep from sticking.
This may look cooked after 5 minutes, but try to keep cooking on the low heat for at least 10-15 minutes so the flour is cooked thoroughly.
Minus the latik and anise seed, this one resembles the texture and taste of the cooked Chinese Tikoy.
