Filipino Carioca (Fried Sweet Rice Balls)

Carioca is everything you want to eat on a stick: crunchy, chewy, sweet, and absolutely addicting.


  • Plain:
  • 1 cup sweet rice flour
  • ½ cup water
  • Coconut flavored:
  • 1 cup sweet rice flour
  • 1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • ¾ cup full-fat coconut milk
  • Sugar coating:
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup coconut milk


  1. In a bowl, mix the rice flour and water until a dough forms. If it’s too sticky, add more flour. If it’s too dry, add some coconut milk. Repeat the same process with the coconut flavored mix.
  2. Scoop the dough and roll into small equally-sized balls.
